A thrushlike bird with a long, graduated tail. Males are glossy back above and rich chestnut below. Females are similar but paler. Juveniles are reddish brown with rusty wingbars. Bornean birds have a bright white crown. Occurs in dense lowland and hill forests, forest edge, and overgrown orchards and plantations; widely poached for the cagebird trade in much of its native range. The song is a varied series of loud whistles and flutelike notes, often involving mimicry of other birds; does not repeat phrases. Call is a sharp “tsick.” Introduced to the Hawaiian Islands.
