Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Stunning jewel of a bird, found in dense forests. Males have vivid, electric green upperparts and black-and-white striped underparts. Females similar but have light orange crown and thinly striped face. Slow in its movements, usually found high up in the canopy gleaning insects from foliage. Parasitizes the nests of spiderhunters and sunbirds.
