VP If you are talking about the line around the head it is actually dark brown,so i would be very interested to know what you think they are,seeing how 4 top gouldian breeders in NSW including Don Crawford have told me that they believe they are cinnamon,but your conclusions on this bird would be interesting ,garyh

The Youtube video is a little under-exposed so it is difficult to see the colours of the head and bib on these birds. I've enhanced a single frame of the video to hopefully make the comparison to the normal black-head (3rd bird from the front) more obvious.

The mask is clearly brown, but quite a dark brown.

Could the effect of cinnimon on Gouldians be different because they are different? E.g. almost all birds are blue/white, green/yellow or monocromatic.
While the Gouldian just likes to be different and has blue/white/green/yellow all on the one bird in some circumstances? The more expert geneticists might be better able to answer this question.
