Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, shy, stocky bird of lowland and foothill forest interior of south eastern New Guinea. A distinct black crown contrasting with white cheek and throat, containing very fine, black dots. A messy, splotched, black collar joins the crown on the back of the neck and gets narrower to the throat. Chest and belly are buffy with small black spots becoming finer towards the belly. Could co-occur with Black-capped Catbird, but Ochre-breasted is smaller, is usually found at lower elevation and has a white cheek. One call is a ringing, high-pitch “chink!”.
