Normal Grey

Normal GreyThis is the coloration of wild cockatiels, and it is dominant to all color mutations (except dominant silver). All mutations are variations of normal grey plumage, and are caused by dilution, intensification, or absence of the colors found in greys.

The bird pictured is a male, which is evident from his clear yellow face and bright red cheek patch. Female greys have grey faces and more indistinct cheek patches.
