Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Long-tailed, long-legged understory bird. Bare facial skin is blue and pink. Found in spiny forest of southwestern Madagascar. Rather shy, and quickly walks away from any disturbance. Most common vocalization is a series of descending “cheeow” notes followed by a couple of low raspy notes. Similar to Red-capped Coua, but has a shorter tail and legs and some pink facial skin.
