A very colorful bowerbird of foothill and lower montane forests. Male is bright orange and yellow with a black face, edge to the wing and tail. Female has yellow underparts and a brown back with brown scaling on the chest. Forages for fruit in the canopy but perches out in the early morning. Golden Myna is superficially similar, although the male Masked Bowerbird lacks the black back and belly. Call, a loud rasping note that sounds rather like a taser.
