Greywing budgies are just what they sound like; budgies with grey wing markings instead of black. Their bodies will also be about 50% lighter than usual.

Clearwings are easy to confuse with greywings as their wing markings are light colored. The difference is that a clearwing budgie's body color remains strong

50 years ago the clearwing mutation had only very faint grey wing markings but unfortunately now most clearwings have markings that are almost as dark as greywings. The main difference in the two mutations is that the body colour of the greywing is diluted about 50% but the clearwing is not. A full body greywing is a combination of the two mutations and has greywings and bright body colour. Most examples shown on the web are not very good at showing the difference.

Here are 3 pictures of my birds the 1st is greywing, 2nd is clearwing and 3rd is full body greywing:
