Ah, Australia. No wonder it looked so unfamiliar 😄 I'll move this to the non-North American forum so it won't get buried before someone comes along who can help.

I do believe you are correct.  The picture I have in the Slater Field Guide of Australian birds appears to show a light brown chest and the green only appears much lower down and very light. In my photo it appears mostly green all over. However the light markings on the wing looks right and the blue under the throat.   Sometimes the paintings aren't as accurate as they could be or perhaps it changes at breeding time. I really appreciate your help.  I wish I had seen it flying. But then I wouldn't have got the photos.  Thank you

Could this be a Dollarbird? I don’t really know a lot of Australian Birds. 

I sit in awe of your diagnosis.  :classic_ohmy:
