The head, nape, chin, and breast are a bright aquamarine-green with a lime green neck patch, wings, belly and an orange rump. Note the large black patch on the wings and throat. Females are duller with a scaly back. Gathers in small groups and often joins mixed-species flocks. Frequently visits feeding stations.
