Must have been a big blue felt tip pen to colour in a whole White Ibis.

People might remember the blue Australian White Ibis seen last year,
similar to the blue colour of the sparrow. A couple of months ago the
Ibis was at Freshwater Creek Wetlands at Chullora and it was in moult
the blue feathers being replaced by white feathers. I would suggest that

there is a connection here with the blue sparrow.
