A whitish edging is common, along with the dark feathers near the head. However, upon closer inspection, you will notice a similar white edging on the light and silvery grey feathers.
Eyes normally appear as big and bright skin patches carrying white color. Furthermore, primary coverts and wings are dark, almost a blackish color. A common occurrence in grey parrots is “blushing.” It refers to when the white patches of skin turn pink. Other parts of their body, like the nails and toes, are solid black in color. But perhaps the most magnificent physical feature of the Congo African Grey parrots is its bright reddish tail.
