Male: yellow head, black body, white iris and pale bill.
Forest and woodland including second growth on firm ground but mostly humid lowland (to 500 m in most of range, double that sometimes).
Males spend most of their lives at the lek whilst females are life-long single mothers. Leks are typically high up in the canopy & difficult to observe. Display groups contain 6-20 males who call, jump and 'moonwalk' along thin horizontal branches.
These birds feed on the fruits of Melastomaceae which are so easy to collect that only an hour or so each day is spent foraging. Also berries and insects are included in the diet. Most fouraging occur at mid to low height in the forest.
