A 5 inch bird from head to tail. They flit about quickly at mid level seeking insects. Nests are cup shaped and built in a fork of a shrub or tree. Their eggs are a beautiful blue with brown markings. They tend to favour leaves of a bright green/yellow colour that naturally camoulflages their bright colour. The males have reddish streaks on the chest.

I have cropped this image as this particular little bird is quite small but he can sing so loud you would think he was huge.
