Fluorescent Green Coat, Yellow Face And Throat, Black Head, Blue Crown and Tail, This Bird Is Truly A Flying Gem

We can’t get enough of the cuteness of tiny and chubby birds. When they put on a one-of-their-kind coat, we can never our eyes off them. These birds are too perfect to be true. Their striking plumage makes them conspicuous whenever they turn up. Mother nature actually favors them.

The long-tailed broadbill is among these outstanding birds. It has a fluorescent green coat and a yellow face and throat with a yellow patch behind each eye. Noticeably, it wears a black helmet-like cap with a beautiful blue patch on top. This enchanting blue shade also appears on the wings and tail, making this bird look like a flying gem.

You can watch the video of this striking bird below.

Young birds do not get the beautiful coat of the adults. They have a shorter tail, green head, and generally overall duller plumage.

During the breeding season, female long-tailed broadbill builds her large pear-shaped nest. This nest is made from fine roots, dead leaves, creepers, and moss and is attached to the branch of a tall tree. She then lays 6 eggs in her nest, incubates them, and feeds the hatchlings until fully fledged.
