War Feathers (1926)

Without the aid of color, I wondered if anyone could tell me what kind of bird co-stars
as "Marmaduke" in the first few minutes of this early "Our Gang" silent film:

War Feathers (1926) - YouTube

Even if you can't it's worth watching for a few good old-fashioned laughs!

(Note: Remainder of film features racial attitudes reflective of the times.)

Looks like a DYH or Yellow Nape - looks almost too big for a red lored? But with the dark around the nares, it could maybe be a lilac crowned, though they are petite? Not sure, definitely an Amazon tho!

That's what I thought. I thought it looked darkly. Hard to tell with black and white!
