So I was thinking she might be either a grey green opaline spangle or a dark green opaline spangle...? What do you think? First 3 are with natural light behind. The others are in yellow room lighting.

Who are her parents, for reference?

Based on the first two pictures, she looks dark green spangle opaline, but in the last two, it looks like she's olive or grey green spangle opaline.

Im not sure if one of her parents is olive or grey green but it doesnt look dark green to me. The other parent looks grey to me. Not sure how to tell olive versus grey green. Her cheek parches are lavender/silver and she has white flights. Pic of her back.

Grey green and Olive are very tricky to tell in spangles as it can rely on the cheek patch and tail colours, both changed by the spangle. Without knowing the parents colours accurately you probably just have to wait and decide what it looks mos tlike once the adult colour settles. Which photos are most accurate to real life? The first ones look dark green.

I can confirm that she is far too dark to be a dilute though.

I agree completely with Toni Whichever photos are more accurate to real life will probably yield a more effective guess.

I feel that the last photos taken indoors are more accurate.

In that case I will say that I believe she is grey green, spangle, opaline

Thank you, so what are the differences in cheek patches and tail feathers for grey green, versus olive?
