Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Odd-looking stumpy pheasant. Dull brown with iridescent green and blue eye-spots on the upperparts; these are much brighter and more prominent in the male. Also note male’s more thickset appearance, brighter red facial skin, and strange forward-pointing crest. Moves quietly through lowland rainforest; males give complex displays during the breeding season.
