This is another sexually dimorphic species - meaning that males and females differ in appearance.  White both have a greenish-blue back and wings, males have dark red heads and chests while females have paler heads and a white chest.

Sadly these beautiful birds have become extinct in their wild habitats due to the introduction of the brown tree snake.  There are only about 100 individuals in zoos as part of breeding programs trying to increase their numbers.

Living in the wild in woodlands and forests, this bird's diet consists of insects and lizard.

Using their peaks, a mating pair will drill a hole into a tree and use rotting wood for nesting.
