Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Beautiful small, plump, and short-tailed bird with green and yellow plumage. Males have a white crown and rump, while females have a blue crown and green rump. Found in the understory of lowland forests, where mostly seen at fruiting trees. At the lek, where several males can often be found in close proximity, males give a short “chí-wrrr” call, interspersed with rising “pweeee” calls, and can be very hard to see.
