In North Queensland, Australia. I'm fairly sure it is common but I can't find it in the bird books I have.

Hi phreeky, I think it is a Green Figbird. I suggest you have a look at both Yellow Figbird (race flaviventris) and Green Figbird (vieilloti). According to Birds of Australia (Simpson and Day) the Green Figbird is normally found in Southern Queensland.

Thanks GRP159, you've definitely given me some direction!

Here is another older shot I've taken of a distant tree (this is from the deck of my house), they seem to love the tree when it loses its leaves and there are often a number of them there. That 2nd shot above it is sitting in a small palm tree eating the berries.

I think it's the same kind of bird, but I do struggle a bit being quite colourblind :(

edit: FYI the book I went through (I think I looked at every page) was an old "Readers Digest: Birds of Australia" First Edition from 1976, haha.
