Default What am I?

I just welcomed a new member to my budgie flock and I am having trouble figuring out her color mutation!
I'm thinking she's a greywing yellow face opaline!?

She certainly does!

The violet cheek patches are present on all budgies, regardless of whether or not they have violet. The way you can tell is there is a certain iridescence to the feathers, and you can see a telltale purple tinge by the vent, and behind the head and ears

Ahhh i can sorta see the tinge of violet in certain areas! I have been reading Cute Little Birdies Avairy mutation guide and found it helpful but in this females case i wasn't confident in what i was seeing. How did you become so knowledgeable about these mutations? What can I do or where do I need to look to help "fill in the gaps" to say...?

After awhile, you sort of pick it up I studied Cute Little Birdies' aviary as well as other sources and gradually built my knowledge of mutations For example, I started out not knowing what a spangle budgie looked like, and after looking at lots of photos and advising many people, I now can tell immediately. It takes practice, but it gets better with time
