Indigo...Common Starling - more irridescence than true colour, so hope this one is o.k.?  Up to Vivacious Violet again....smiley

Thanks birdie , and yes the banded lapwing does have that resemblance doesn't he.

Annie does that honeyeater have that violet face as he gets older or does it fade out ?

I really didnt think we would get this far guys , great work in keeping it going .

Now for a Strawneck Ibis , I'm sure there must be a bit of VIOLET there somewhere.

Yes, fantastic job everyone!  Shoop, love that sheen on the Ibis.  Oh that juv Crescent had me completely stumped when I first saw it, thought it was a juve Black-headed HE and had to get some serious outside help id'ing it laugh  That violet fades out very quickly I believe.

A Peafowl looks INDIGO to me. (not a native bird though, but neither is a Common Starling, so I thought I could post it?)

I am assuming that Rick's Kingfisher was a Sacred so here is a Forest Kingfisher for Indigo.... I seem to miss out on all the other colours

Well seeing as it is the last few hours of the challenge and nobody appears to be able to finish off the rainbow with violet then here is a White Necked Heron who definitely has some lovely violet tones
