How interesting, I must have gotten what I read mixed up.
I "happened" (ok admit I found an excuse) to stop by Petco for some Nutriberries and peeked at the birds. I was surprised to see a Parrotlet, and while attempting to handle him (poor little guy was scared so I backed off) this little green bird was Begging to come out. They guy opened the door, and out he came, steped up right away, nibbled on my finger and let me give him kisses. The sign said canary wing, so after I did some reading I went back a second time and saw him stretch, he did in fact have white also on the feathers. I'm so tempted and trying so hard not to think about him. I loved him even more when I noticed he had one little toe that was missing the nail. They don't know why, I'm guessing a sibling could have got at him in the nest. I read some forum posts of people complaining of screeching but I did ask the store clerk and he said he was quiet. I can't stand to see those Birds there. I really hate pet stores, both my Birds have come from small home breeders.
It's so hard not to want to bring him home with me! My husband loves birds too, we have two if you remember. A P'lett and a Bourke.
My Bourke is still doing fantastic by the way. He's become so tame I can't believe it. He's an awesome little bird.
Do you think these White wings are hard to come by? I never heard of one.
