Spangle. Grey?, hard to tell what color he is in the photo. He is beautiful.
Thanks:)
I sometimes see a bit of a bluish tint in him in certain light:S
Will flash help? I will try to post more pictures tomorrow
I'm saying spangle and thinking grey based on the picture :)

And beautiful to boot :D
Thanks:)

Opaline grey? I am not sure about the wing markings but I know he is a grey :)
Thanks for helping out:)

Normal birds have the black markings on the wings but on the spangles the markings are the edge of the wings rather than having white or yellow on the edges with the black in the centre if that makes sense?
That what he has :S But it makes sense thanks :) karma for the help

Thanks for helping:)
I do not know the parents
Would flash help you see the colour better?
No problem :)

Flash tends to wash out the colour so I prefer to take pictures in natural light where possible as this gives you the best chance of getting their true colour to show up.

I'm so sorry I couldn't take more photos today
I will just look at pictures of mauve budgies and grey budgies and compare them to Alpha
Thanks a lot:)

he looks to be a spangle grey. check his cheek patches to tell. apart from the white there should be grey or blueish if he is grey. if there is a strong violet colour then he is mauve.

def looks grey to me though.

amberlea, your boy is absolutely, definitely a spangle.:)
