    I was told by someone a while back that it only takes one
    white flight feather to identify a pied lovebird. My dutch
    blue male had one flight feather that was white, on only one
    side. I remember showing the picture on one of these message
    boards, and it was pointed out to me that the white flight was
    a pied trait, even when there are no other color variations.
