Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A beautiful ghostlike bird that materializes in large numbers during rice harvest and bamboo seeding events, and promptly vanishes afterwards. Male is leaf green with a blue face and reddish belly. Female has a more faded blue face and lacks the red belly. Both sexes have a point-tipped tail, but the male’s is substantially longer. Forages in flocks, often dangling off of bamboo tips or seeding rice heads, giving high thin “tseep” notes.
