Spangle dominant pied female ( not clearwing )

Except for the white in the cheek patches, which suggest spangle, I would say cinnamon recessive pied.

 

The flight feathers don't appear to be clear like a dominant pied's flights

Another vote for Recessive Pied. :)

 

Nev, what makes you say Cinnamon? I would have said possibly FBC Greywing, as her markings are grey and her colour doesn't appear to be less?

BUDBOY...........go check the bird for presence of iris rings or not. That will settle the debate one way or another.

Definitely Recessive Pied. See no iris rings, and in fact her eyes appear to be a plum-red colour (since I'm assuming you used the flash on your camera) which is actually the eye colour Recessive Pieds can have when they are hatched as babies. :)

Yes i used the flash :) what was decided about the markings ? Spangle or greywing ?

Interesting, the new photos with flash make the cere look pink, not brown. Could it be a male after all?

 

I think it's a recessive pied full body greywing or clearwing, but not a spangle. (Well, I take that back, I'm not sure about spangle. That first photo isn't the best, and the new ones the flash washes the markings out completely.)
