Why are you so sure it's not a Derbyan? It look just like a Derbyan.

Just an opinion. If I am wrong, so be it. Looks too small, even if immature, to be a Derbyan.

BTW: I am referring to the original picture on post #1.

From the internet site: Avianweb.com

The Derbyan Parakeet is larger than most parakeets. Adult Derbyans average 20 inches (50 centimeters). It is said to be similar in size to the popular Alexandrine Parakeet. These birds are sexually dimorphic, meaning that males and females may be distinguished visually.

The Mustached / Moustached Parakeet is a medium-sized parrot, averaging 13 - 16 inches in length (33 - 40 cm) and weighing it at 100 to 130 grams at maturity.

Just sharing a little information. As I mentioned, I can't say for certain whether the bird pictured in post #1 is definitely a Moustache.

I judged the size of the bird based on the 2x4 railing he is standing on.

well my 26" macaw looks about that size on a 2x4, so im thining that bird is 20-24" long...

he looks about the right size for every derbyan ive worked with (a total of 4 + my cousin has a breeding pair in the UK). and the markings are PERFECT for a derbyan, colors not rght for a moustash and those are the only 2 species with facial markings like that that i know of

This is the translation of the title, which is German.

"Blue-fronted Amazon cleans and reorganizes its plumage."
