Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A distinctive bird with a chestnut crown. This species has green and black wings, dull-yellow underparts, black face stripe, a bright blue shoulder patch and a red patch under the tail. A very colorful species, although it can be inconspicuous while it hops around foraging on forest floors. Primarily found in rainforest, this species undertakes seasonal movements, and can be found very close to the coast (including mangroves) during winter. It is usually seen before it is heard – its call is a loud, well known ‘walk to work’ often heard in rainforests within its range (they sometimes call from perches high up in the canopy).
