Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Graceful songbird of shaded areas in forests. Stunningly plumaged male has a white belly, purplish black upperparts, short crest, long black tail with extremely long central feathers, and a neon blue eye-ring. Female has a dark gray head, narrow pale eyering, short crest, and chestnut-brown wings and tail. Female and young male lack long central tail feathers. Song a run-on series of coarse whistles; call a rough, nasal “bee.”
