Default Something unusual??

This little one confuses me. Firstly I know it has to be an Opaline - both parents are Opalines - but it doesn't look like one. Secondly, I have never seen that yellow "circle" around any of my other birds.
What do you think?

Definitely looks like a heavily marked Opaline. The body colour on the wings is often less visible with these shades of green when there are heavy markings also. You can clearly see the Opaline wing bar on it though.

The patches around its eyes are very striking aren't they! Do any others have that marking? It should be fun to watch grow, take pictures for us as it ages and moults won't you?

Yes, I saw the Opaline bar on the wings, but nothing more. I will post pictures of mom and dad, and I will post new pics as this bird grows.

I saw the opaline bar on the wing but didnt mention it because I wasnt sure I was seeing the right thing.
I have read a about a chick this dark on TB before, he was very dark and looked "normal" but molted into a opaline.

Certainly looks like a rare one, very nice looking bird, like the yellow contrast against the black, real nice. Please, more pics as he gets older.

Looks like a chick with excessive melanin to me After the first molt is finished the little one should look like most other opalines
