Question A green Grey?

I'm slightly unfamiliar with the difference between olive green and grey green. So I saw these budgies at Petco and thought that I would share these pics I took of them and see what you ppl think.

First off, a pair of what I believe are normal Cresteds, one a light green the other olive green.

And here's a budgie, I'm not sure if it's Grey green or Olive green???

Here's another Crested with the same rump color.

Maybe I even have it backwards? x) I just noticed the first "olive green" one I posted looks like it has some grey. Tee hee!!!

I love Birdies.

olive and grey green can be very similar. usually olive has the same deep violet cheek patches and blue tail as other greens. grey green should have grey or blue cheek patches and a black tail.

olive often appears blotchy with greyish areas.
