Orange-bellied Leafbird

The orange-bellied leafbird is a small passerine bird found from the Himalayas to northern Southeast Asia, including Hong Kong.

Like other leafbirds, the main color of the orange-bellied leafbird is a bright green, which is where the name comes from. The females are mostly green with a bit of blue on the face, a bit of orange on the belly, and a bit of blue on the outermost wings and tail. Males have more striking versions of these colors, as well as a black and blue mask.

They feed mostly on insects, as well as some fruit and nectar, preferring the canopy. Hong Kong’s mature secondary forests house these birds, though they are not the easiest to spot.
