      Again in the Jungle Jewels aviary, but what is it?

      Euphonia sp?
    • vogelcommando
      I would say Thick-billed Euphonia ( Euphonia laniirostris )
    • Jackwow
      It looks like it VC, although none of the pictures I have found of Thick-billed Euphonia on the net show the blue head feathers extending so far down the neck and across the front of the throat?

      Another jungle...

      The other possibility would be Orange-bellied Euphonia
    • Jackwow
      Thanks FBBird.
    • condor
      with its dark throat and big yellow crown (going well behind eye), 3 euphonia species are possible: Yellow-crowned, orange-crowned and orange-bellied. I know Jurong has the last species, but don't know if they have the first two.
    • Jackwow
      Thanks for the input Condor.
    • Onychorhynchus coronatus
      Yes, it is a euphonia, the species though I'm not sure as I'm not brilliant with birds
    There are no comments to display.
