Having raised a Blue-faced Honeyeater I don't wonder at the need for 
'auxillaries'.  We estimated that this bird peeped 3 million times in the 
three weeks it took to raise!  Incidentally the nestling's facial skin 
was blue and was still blue when it fledged.  Perhaps the green-yellow is 
acquired at a later stage I don't know.  Maybe our bird was just odd.
