There was some discussion among the cream of the ACT's birding
fraternity at Kelly's about whether the plumage on the head of the bird
is green or blue.

IMO, depending on the direction of the light hitting the plumage and
looking at some of my images, the colour range is from green, through
blue, to purple.
