Description:

It was a very beautyfull bird it was mostly green with a blue head and a red underbelly it also had a yellow patch on the back of its head.

Habitat:

They can be found in bushland, rainforests,eucalyptus Forrest and even urban areas.

Notes:

I found this little guy wondering around on the ground and I saw an opportunity to take a photo but It let me get surprisingly close but then I realised it was hurt it had a broken wing. So I got a box and a cloth. I then grabbed the poor bird using the cloth and put it in the box. I sent it to the RSPCA and hopefully it will make a full recovery
