Saddleback Budgie

This mutation first appeared in Australia in 1975 by breeders L. and B. Ryan. It looks much like Opaline, but with markings on the back and nape “fuzzed out”, as well as a recessive inheritance. This patch is slightly discolored, looking more grey, though this is easier to notice in yellow-based birds.
