Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Slender, ornate bird found in low, scraggly forest and adjacent overgrown clearings. Handsomely patterned in shades of gray, orange and white, with a black “mutton chop” beard bordered by a white eyebrow. Female and immature are slightly browner than adult male. Song, often given from an exposed perch, is a quick up-and-down series of sweet whistles repeated every few seconds. When not singing, it tends to skulk inside dense vegetation where it is hard to see.
