Aussie backyard bird saved from my naughty cat!!

No picture unfortunately :/ And also unfortunately early this morning we were awoken by loud squawking from INSIDE the house as our youngest cat had brought in this beautiful bird. Thank GOD she had only mouthed it & bought it in b4 she had started her usual "play" around the house till her victim dies - so my daughter & I were out there like rockets!!! We live on the Sunshine Coast in South East Queensland Australia, right near the beach. This bird was about the size of a small grey dove. But the best way I could describe her colouring was you know when you dye your hair blue-black? Well if I'm remembering correctly DEFINITELY her back and her wing span and I'm pretty sure the rest of her whole body was GREEN-black!! Like the deepest, shiniest green you've ever seen when seen in certain lights, was very beautiful!! Even though she gave me a little nip when I managed to catch her I don't really recall the colour of her beak - which prob means it WASN'T a vibrant colour or I would recall it, so I'm thinking grey or black. And THANK GOD, soon as we opened the door she flew off unhurt. As for our cat... she was in big trouble!!!! I've looked through all images of Australian Native Birds and I just can't find any pix that look like her. Any ideas anyone????? AS I said she was black as black as a raven but with the deepest green tinged through it.

    It is grey with a long beak and a white ring around it's neck. The bird is about the size of a dove and I live in Florida near the Georgia line.
