A large, fairly long-tailed bird of montane forest on the Bird’s Head of New Guinea. All black plumage with iridescence on the head, fairly long bill, distinctive, yellow wattle between the eye and the bill. Note the blue line and a small purple dot below the base of the mouth. Feeds on fruit but also probes mossy branches for insects. Other similar sized black birds co-occur, but none have the yellow face wattle. Voice, a long, mournful, monotone whistle.
