This is my new bird Sora! He is a boy. I’m learning more about mutations but i’m still at the beginning and i don’t want to identify this bird wrongly. I don’t have any other photos of him as i’m just letting him settle in and i’m not trying to scare him too much.

Anyone know what mutation Sora is? 94F1834A-8571-4A3E-B743-8C251823D1E3.jpeg I

Do you have any clearer pics in natural light?

I first thought opaline but I think the flights are off.
Maybe Pastel? or Bonze fallow D blue?

Edit; You know this bird is Fischeri? (Fischer´s lovebird) a different species to your other bird. Just to clarify that.

No i didn’t know that. I was told when i bought it that it was a peach face. I did attach a clearer picture.

Do you have a clearer pic of the face? The first pic looks like the bird has an eye ring.

Definitely an eye-ring. Definitely call the store and tell them they mis-sold you a bird that was a different species.
Will you be keeping this bird?
Mutation looks to be Pastel to me.

I will be keeping the bird. I love it, i originally went to the store looking for a fischeri bird but i saw him and knew i had to take him home.
I keep him in a seperate cage from the peachfaced lovebirds.

That´s nice :) Maybe they will be friendly and they can be out in the room to play together. If they accidently mate, just remove and eggs laid and boil. If they are both males or both females, then that doesn´t matter.

I have one other male and one female, Plus the baby but I don’t know the gender of it. The other male, Birdy is tame but i’m working on taming the female, Mango.
Thank you for all the help, I appreciate it!

Haha, I'm also working on taming my female lovie, Mango!

And yep! Just like Zara said, that is an eye-ring lovebird, and I think she's right about it being a pastel, too! (I'm not great with mutations yet though)

Either way he's beautiful so congrats! :cngrt5:

It´s a Fischer´s lovebird (Agapornis Fischeri). I said ¨definitely an eye-ring¨, as in, ¨definitely an eye-ring on the bird¨.
Sorry to nit pick. I just wanted to clarify to avoid confusion. I never refer to a bird as an eyering lovebird - that´s when folks assume they are the same species as Personatus and end up breeding hybrids by mistake.
