I have been seeing a number of leafbirds recently. A composite image below shows the difference between the Lesser Green Leafbird (Chloropsis cyanopogon) and the Greater Green Leafbird (Chloropsis sonnerati zosterops) for males and females.
Note in Greater Green Leafbirds the heavier, hooked bill; the black eye mask that extends above the eye and in females the clear yellow eye ring and yellow throat.
