Macgregor's or Huon Bowerbird

Amblyornis [macgregoriae or germanus] (= Amblyornis macgregoriae) De Vis, CW 1890

MacGregor's bowerbird is a medium-sized, up to 26 cm long, olive brown bowerbird of New Guinea's mountain forests, roughly the size and shape of an American Robin or a Eurasian Blackbird. The male is adorned with an erectile orange yellow crest, that is partly hidden until shown in courtship display. The unadorned female is similar to the male, but without the crest. Superb mimics, they are known for imitating other birds, pigs, rushing water, and even human speech. Source: Wikipedia
