A large bird, deep chestnut with yellow tail feathers and black heads. A colorful patch of blue skin and pink wattle makes them even more distinctive. They are primarily frugivores. The feathers were used by the indigenous cultures as ornamentation. They nest in large colonies, making large hanging basket nests in the canopy.
A VERY noisy bird! The vocalizations were incredible, a combination of bubbling and gurgling sounds. When they sang, they would tip forward on the branch where they were perched, appearing to almost fall off.
