Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A plump, brightly colored babbler of dense forest understory. The yellow-orange breast and red bill are distinctive. The tail feathers have a peculiar outward curve near the tip. The song is a series of melodious phrases reminiscent of a Rose-breasted grosbeak. Calls include harsh scolding, chattering, and a “peter-peter” like a Tufted Titmouse. Introduced to Hawaii, Japan, Reunion Island, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. In Hawaii it occurs in lowland and montane forest on Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii, but not on Kauai.
