Identifications:
The male's plumage is a bright emerald-green with yellow underparts, a brick-red rump and blue highlights on the wings and upper back. The female's plumage is less vibrant, with pale olive underparts, dull green wings and back and blue-black wingtips. The characteristic red rump is only found in the male.
Song:
When perched in the treetops they emit a pleasant, trill-like whistle, almost a song.
Call:
A disyllabic, shrill whistle with an upward inflection repeated three of four times. Calling to one another with an attractive "chee chillip chee chillip."
