This native Australian bird has green feathers on its face while it is a juvenile, but on reaching maturity the feathers turn to a beautiful blue colour.
I gate crashed this chaps Sunday lunch at the Wollombi Inn, just south of Cessnock NSW.
Today is New Years Eve in Australia, so I would like to wish my BP friends a very happy and prosperous New Year!
