Large dark bird of undisturbed rainforest. Its red, crested bill is easily recognizable. It has a dark body that appears iridescent navy blue in good light, with light red legs and a buffy tail tip. Found on the ground or in trees, sometimes quite high, in mature rainforest, usually singly or in pairs. Can be quite secretive, especially in areas with a lot of human activity. Gives a sharp, metallic “pick” call that is easy to overlook, as well as low booming calls around dawn and dusk.
