Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

The huge crab-smashing bill of this mangrove specialist sets it apart from all other pittas. Brightly colored with a black mask, green-and-black wings, and a yellow belly. Similar in color to Blue-winged Pitta, but note Mangrove’s larger-headed appearance and habitat. Like other pittas, shy and difficult to see; listen for its throaty and fluid two-parted whistles.
