    I think this is a pale headed lovebird. This is also a mutation in the *blue* series.

    To be exact.... It's a EF pale headed green bird.

    Looks to be influenced by more green tone than blue tone, so I'd say Aqua-turquoise. With Aqua expressing about 50%-blue influence give or take. Turquoise expressing about 80%-blue influence give or take, and Turquoise"blue" more blue influence via controlled breeding. Aqua-turquoise you're looking at more of a green influence so expressing about 20%-blue influence give or take, so typically quite a green bird like yours looks to be.

    Hopefully someone that's been in the game longer will help you out soon.

    Sorry can't get it any bigger, here is the typical shades of the parblues, with no dark factor or violet. God knows why posting images isn't straight forward.
    1/Aqua-turquoise, 2/Aqua, 3/Turquoise, 4/Turquoise"blue".

    See if this works.
