I am not sure what aspect would be unusual. Chances are the green one is a younger male. The males interact a lot, watch each other, like to learn or steal things from bowers.......

On Mt. Rogers (Fraser/Flynn) yesterday, a green Bowerbird flew into a dead tree near me landing next to a male bird, both then flew back to bushes where the green bird came from, with the male carrying a twig about 12-15 cm long. Unusual behaviour?
