Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small forest bowerbird. Males and females differ greatly. Males are black with stunning bright gold on the head and wings. Females are light brown with scalloping on the breast and back (much smaller and more lightly build than the big plump Satin Bowerbirds). Males have a bright yellow bill, while female’s bill is a black-gray color. Usually found in rainforest habitats. The male builds a small open ‘bower’ out of twigs to attract a mate. It decorates this bower with small objects. This species is not very vocal and is usually only heard calling near the bower.
