Is This A Texas Clearbody ?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone think this bird could be a Texas Clearbody? or is it just perhaps a very washed out mottled looking faded opaline. I know Nev says he has some opalines that have faded significantly after their first molt. However this one does have grey washed out flight feathers looking a little like the TCB. has me wondering a little.

Hi,

 

I've only ever had one TCB. and I have only seen a couple but it does appear to be one. She is a nice female, and has the light blue through the back which some TCB. acquire.

 

Thanks

Yep, Opaline Texas Clearbody. The give away is the grizzled grey flights.

I thought TCB had red eyes. Wouldn't that be a way to tell?
