Default Mutation help please?

Hi mutation experts!

I got my female budgie about a year and a half ago. Her name is Hilda

I'm no expert on mutations. Does anyone mind telling me what Hilda's mutation is? I'm especially not confident in my ability to discern greywing from clearwing.

The first photo is from when I got her in April 2018, the other one I took a few minutes ago. I probably colour corrected the photo from a year ago, but I've included it anyway because you can clearly see the shape of her wing markings. The newer photo was taken in natural sunlight and has had no colour correction done.

Also including a picture of my 7 year old male, Roo, because he posed so nicely. He's tame obviously, so he's a lot easier to photograph than Hilda is. I'm pretty sure he's an olive green greywing, but I'm happy to hear what the experts think if they disagree with me!

Thanks everyone

Unfortunately, I'm not able to see the photos you posted! Could you try posting them again? Maybe by embedding them in the post itself instead of putting them as thumbnails?

Hi, Melissa --

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:

Hi there, your hen looks to be a cobalt cinnamon spangle, and does she have a white patch on her tummy?

The cock is difficult to identify as I can't really see the marking on his wings or his tail. He looks to be grey green and maybe a spangle? If so, I would go with grey green spangle greywing.

I'm sorry everyone, I didn't realize there would be an issue viewing the photos.

Here are those three photos again, plus two more for tonic that show Roo's back and tail a bit better.











Thank you for humouring me!

I think he is a grey green spangle greywing.
