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.A greygreen olive spangle split for recessive pied. The cheek patches and his tail feathers are telltail features. Gorgeous bird, an English I suppose !!
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.Without bigger, clearer pics I will be too hard to say for sure.
:goodpost: :iagree: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.
If the cheek patches are violet then the bird is not Grey Green as they have grey cheek patch.It's a mix between violet and white - the top half is violet and the bottom part white.
I really appreciate your willingness to help even when the pictures aren't good. What do you think of Jimm-V opinion that it is also split RP?
It does not look violet. It looks grey or blue, so in both cases your bird is Grey Green.
