Unique coloration

This mottled green headed bird has a translucent orangey red coloration with deeper striations or swirls. These striations are what gives the bird a strong presence in addition to its nice proportion. That orange/red coloration is unique in my experience with Toikka birds and also makes it stand out in a collection.
The Liro was on my early “hit list” and it took quite a while to find one.
