A beautiful spotting, Di. These are spectacular birds, and those blue eyes are something else. Your bird is either a female or a juvenile male. If it's a male, he'll take on the satin blue feathers at about 7 years of age. Until then, I haven't the faintest idea how to tell them apart.

Incredible images Di. I don't think I've ever seen such vivid blue eyes! Thank you for sharing :)
