The Australasian figbird has a total length of 27–29.5 cm (10.6–11.6 in) This is a juvenile male. The mature male has bare, red skin around the eye, a black crown and a grey neck and throat. Its body is olive-green, except for a white under-tail area.
This is the first time I've seen one of these birds. I saw it in a tree near the Parramatta River not far from "Old Government House" Parramatta NSW Australia
