Opaline Peach Face Lovebird Peach Faced

Notable traits of the Opaline Peach Face Lovebird Bird: Peach Faced (Agapornis Roseicollis)
Latin Name: Agapornis Roseicollis
Common Name: Opaline Peach Face Lovebird
Description: Instead of the normal Peachfaced coloration on the birds brow, face and bib, the visual Opaline color mutation presents a bird with iridescence, a full hood of color,
subtle pale gray to violet ear patches in some birds, and tail feathers with a broad, full band of red-orange color in green series birds a truly striking plumage.

Compared to normal colored Peachfaced, the Green series Opaline body plumage is a lighter shade of green and lacks the blue rump feathers which are also green.

Immature Opalines are often distinguishable from normal colored Peachfaced in the nest due to thicker, more plush down, and based on color as soon as 18-21 days of age or earlier.

Opalines develop the full, bright hood and tail coloring of an adult when they are 4 - 6 months of age.

Green series birds have a red hood, while blue series birds have a grey-ish to creamy white hood.
