Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chunky, elaborately patterned, remarkably short-legged bird. Pale blue tail corners are conspicuous in flight. Elusive and uncommon; unlikely to be seen by those not searching for it. Found at low and middle elevations in eastern rainforest. Unlike all the other ground-rollers, spends most of its time in trees, sometimes high in the canopy. Song is a high, short “boop” note that is repeated many times.
