Default Light green Dominant pied Spangle?

I was just wondering if I have this bird's mutation correct.

Thanks for your help.
I've just looked at Advocado (Lindsey's bird) and now I'm not so sure if my bird is a light green. Maybe a greygreen? Well, I need your help!!

Without bigger, clearer pics I will be too hard to say for sure.

A greygreen olive spangle split for recessive pied. The cheek patches and his tail feathers are telltail features. Gorgeous bird, an English I suppose !!

interesting! i've been meaning to look up the significance of cheek patches. It would be awesome to be able to predict even those. especially because some birds have really nice contrasts with certain colors, like all yellow with violet cheek patches.

Gosh, the more I look at Lindsey's birds, the more melancholy i get about being too far away to get myself one of those handfed English dreambirds!

You know that you can get them bigger by clicking on the pic. I don't have a good camera so I can't do anytrhing about the clearness of the pics.
Even if you're not sure - what do you think. Give me all the possibilities.

I know I can get bigger pics by clicking on them but it does all I get is more fuzziness. I really can't tell much without good pics. Check your settings you may not have the correct setting for what your trying to do.

Far as the bird goes it is definately a Dom Pied and I am sure I am seeing Spangle. I am sure I am seeing body colour half the intensity to what it should be. Two mutations will do this Dilute and Cinnamon. The bird does not have pink feet so this rules out Cinnamon. I am not sure if I am seeing grey markings though or not but if so this accounts for the loss of body colour and the bird maybe a Dilute Dom Pied Spangle Lt Green.

But again without really clear pics it is hard to be sure.

Thank you. Yes it's an "English" and I'm quite impressed with him.
Also thanks to RIPbudgie
