Small, slight slender-billed bowerbird of east coast. Most common in subtropical and tropical rainforest with an isolated population occurring at Eungella. Forage mainly in the canopy, on fruits, flowers and invertebrates. Unlike most other bowerbirds the male attracts the female with its bright plumage in the canopy then leads her to the flimsy bower which is typically hidden under cover of a liana thicket and maintained for only a few days.
