Dazzling pitta of Borneo’s lowland dipterocarp forests. Midnight blue above and blinding scarlet below, with a dark head, bright blue wing coverts, and a glowing silver line trailing backwards behind the eye. Garnet Pitta is very similar but has a bright red crown; ranges barely overlap, if at all. Despite incandescent coloration, can be difficult to see as it forages in dense undergrowth; especially favors well-shaded gullies and gulches. Listen for its song, a pure ascending whistle which ends abruptly.
