Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A medium-sized bird of montane forest canopy. Slate gray color with black wing and tail. Male has a black face whereas the female is more striking with all black underparts. Female is distinctive, but male is similar to Common, Papuan and Gray-headed Cicadabird males but has more black on the wing. Song, a duet. The male gives a downslurred, nasal “wiiiuuuuuu!” and female joins in with 3-4 harsh rasping notes “rak-rak-rak!”.
