    Thank you so much Jessica. I totally appreciate it. Boy its
    too bad it was the only of its kind, it was so beautiful! I
    looked up rare mutations and saw two birds, one was red and the
    other was orange, but I forget what they called it. However
    they were nothing close to this bird. If I find I will post
    the link.
    Again thanks for the info :)
