Photo was altered to demonstrate what a Tangerine white back looks like. These were the only photos available until better ones are found. Dovie was molting feathers so her feathers were not very smooth, but it is easy to see the pearled tips on the feathers.  Photo on right has Brownie, a tangerine Mandarin in the foreground.
