Well I expected to search a bit longer but I got a phone call today that someone had dropped off a parakeet and went to check her out. Her previous owners left her without her cage or things. The paperwork listed her name as Sunny and her age as three. I'm surprised she was dropped off like that she's very tame under the fear and seems to be in pretty good shape. Her coloration seems a little odd. She's an extremely pale yellow with the blue patches and assorted black marks.
I'm probably going to change her name but I wanted to give her a few days to show her personality first. She and Jester are currently calling to each other across the house so I hope this works out well between them.

Congratulations on your new friend!
Sunny is a beautiful recessive pied mutation. I love her coloring!

I'll be looking forward to your updates about her.

Best wishes!

She has a band but I don't know if it gives me any further information about her. Sorry for the image quality I figured she had a traumatic enough day without me flipped her over.

Your Sunny is beautiful, I'm so glad you were able to rescue him!

Without a doubt, Sunny is a handsome little boy I think he is a sky blue violet single factor yellowface type I recessive pied budgie

I have a difficult time telling blues and purples apart but you think Starlight (previously Sunny) is likely male? I'm only surprised because I went to the vet today listing my new buddy as a girl and they didn't correct me.

Starlight is definitely male! His purplish pink cere with a uniform colour reveals this quite well

Some avian vets consistently go by the rule of blue for males, anything else for females, which isn't true, especially in young budgies, or recessive pied budgies (of which your Starlight is both). That's probably why they didn't correct you
