Blue-crowned Racquet-tail

Prioniturus discurus (Vieillot, 1822)

The Blue-crowned Racket-tail, Prioniturus discurus is a parrot found on all the larger islands of the Philippines not starting with "P" (i.e., not Palawan or Panay). It is 27 cm, basically green with a blue crown, bluish undertail, whitish beak, and dark underwings with green coverts. The Blue-headed Racket-tail (P. platenae) was formerly included in this species. Source: Wikipedia
