Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A fairly large bird of foothill and adjacent lowland forest understory. Brown upperparts, rufous underparts, head feathers coming to a bushy crest at the back, and a thick black bill. Similar to Rusty Pitohui, but Piping Bellbird has a crest and lacks the pale eye. Very shy and heard much more often than seen. Incessantly repeated, monotonous, medium-pitch piping note.
