I asked a woman about her budgies, and she said she has
male clearwings. Im not sure they really are though. If
you could let me know your opinion on looking.

She said : clearwing parents. Voilet male, Skyblue male, Turquiose male.







I thought these were clearwings....

There are quite a few people who refer to pieds as clearwings. It is actually quite a visualised term if you think about it - any bird with no markings essentially has 'clear' wings.

Im not sure if you could correct her verbally - perhaps print out some of the established (researched and published) identified standards of clearwings, and show her that her birds are actually pieds, spangles, etc.

So do you see any clearwings? Because I dont.
So she must think even a lutino is a clearwing. Pied
usually are more likely to have clear flights.

I tried to correct her, or understand if she thought she
actually had clearwings.
I guess not, her reply:
"The silver-grey colour can be dark on some clearwings then others.Some bird go dark sometime when they get older. It can so differ some on different mutation.

Sometimes it hard 2 c on a pic as pic make them look dark or lighter."

She says i can differ on different mutations :S She musn't be so sure.
Oh well, theres another lesson people, Backyard breeders dont always know
what they're talking about.
