Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Long-tailed, long-legged understory bird. Rufous belly and all-blue bare facial skin. Found in dry deciduous forest of western and northern Madagascar. Rather shy, and quickly walks away from any disturbance. Most common vocalization is a loud “kwaaa” followed by 3–4 lower “kwe” notes. Very similar to Giant Coua, but much smaller, and without pink facial skin. Similar to Red-capped Coua, but has a shorter tail and legs and a rufous belly.
