Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Dark, long-tailed, long-legged understory bird. When seen well, the dark-green back, red cap, and blue facial skin are distinctive and beautiful. Very shy and skulking; usually found in the densest tangles of the understory of eastern rainforest. The most common calls are an incredibly long, dry rattle, and a loud single “keeeeow”. Slightly smaller than Red-breasted Coua, with red on the cap rather than the breast. Much longer-tailed than forest-dwelling rails.
