And Now the Female Green Honeycreeper

The Female Green Honeycreeper - Photo by Eleanor Tauber
And now we know why the species is called a "Green" Honeycreeper as the male in the previous photo sent in by Eleanor is downright cerulean. I'd begun to think it was one of those strange ornithological mysteries like the Red-bellied Woodpecker. I know, I know, there is supposed to be a rosy blush on them but to call that red...?
