VERY BEAUTIFUL!!! I will let someone else confirm mutation. When they deviate from the typicals I am no good.

You have the male's mutation right

Greywing is dominant to dilute and the two mutations can't be visual on the same bird. If your female has another mutation besides dilute it is probably cinnamon. Also her body colour looks more like Type 2 yellow face grey and the yellow has spread making it appear green. Colour shades are always hard to identify on dilutes

Did you notice that I edited my post about the same time as you posted?

Many dilutes have greyish markings and sometimes if cinnamon is present it's hard to see. I don't think she is cinnamon but it is a possibility
