The breeding males are unmistakable, jet black above apart from large orange-red patches on their wings and tails. Their breast sides are also orange, with the rest of their under parts colored white. These birds have been observed flashing the orange and yellow of their tails, on and off, to startle and chase insects from the underbrush.
