Default What color is Earl Grey?

So... I'm not very good with budgie color mutations. I've been reading a ton about the various colors, but I'm still confused!

This is Earl:



His chest is more grey than blue, his rump is blue, the cheek patches are violet, but his tail is black (or maybe very dark blue, no real difference between the tail color and the flight feathers).

He looks more grey than the pictures of the mauve budgies I've seen, but his cheeks are violet. Oh, and that would be Twitter in the background - Earl is helping her watch her eggs.

I am not good with mutations, but he looks like a small tiger to me. Like the way the wing colour is, he absolutely gorgeous. I am a bid jealous!

Looks like an opaline mauve, but the pics are very blurry.

I'll try and grab a few more pics. Earl loves to be held, but the camera is the scariest thing in the world. These were the best I could get out of about 20 tries -and I had to be sneaky to get them.
