Proud owners of one of the most unique plumages found in any bird

These birds have an exciting way of choosing mates and hiding. Their backs are a very subtle color, but their fronts are very colorful and bright. Due to this strategy, these birds have adapted to roosting so that only their backsides are visible, which is hard to see.

This also helps them when incubating their eggs because both the male and female can do it this way, no matter the eggs’ color. These birds are primarily insectivorous and mostly found in South and Southeast Asia.
