Observation details

Found May-21, 2019 by Adam Kenney, a non-birder who flushed it. Seen May-22 by Clyde Stoddart but not by others following an extensive search. I found it at 11:38 in roughly the same area it had been previously seen in but over a stream. Later seen by others and still present when we left. Purple-blue front, greenish back. Two-tone bill, yellow green tip to just before nostril, reddish but patchy after. Forehead plate whitish-blue. Legs yellow.
