Green Catbird

Ailuroedus crassirostris

Description:

Although they belong to the bowerbird family, male Green Catbirds do not build bowers and only mate with one female, helping her to defend and feed their offspring.

Habitat:

The Green Catbird is a large, stout green bird, spotted white, with a dusky crown, nape and face and a white bill. The eye is red. Juveniles are duller in colour. It can also resemble the immature or female Satin Bowerbird, which has a distinctly blue eye, a dark bill and a more scalloped patterning on the underbody, while the upper body is a more olive-green.

Notes:

Cat-like mewing; sometimes likened to the cry of a human baby.
