Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A tiny, plump, short-tailed gray songbird. Male distinctive: uniform gray except for diagnostic prominent red breast patch and red rump. Female lacks chest patch, but still shows diagnostic red rump. Juvenile is gray, lacking any red. Found singly or in pairs in forest, forest edge, and plantations, usually at upper levels of trees, in lowlands and foothills. Confined to a limited range in the south Moluccas. Calls include a high-pitched, disyllabic “tsee-oo,” a simpler, abbreviated “tsew,” a harsher “bzit” and “bzeet,” and a “si-si-si-si-si-si-si” song that varies in number of notes.
