Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Unmistakable in range: male is stunning electric-blue with purple patch on throat and belly. Female completely different; pale grayish with heavy spotting below and scaling on back. Note shape: rather plump and short-tailed with small bill and large eye. Tends to be slow-moving, perching obviously atop the canopy or inconspicuously feeding within a fruiting tree. Found in forested areas, singly or in pairs.
