An endemic species of Taiwan, this bird is quite eye-catching by its bright body colors, long tail feathers, and loud metallic calls. It was once threatened but is now pretty easy to see in low altitude forests around the island. In its breeding season, it is very aggressive in protecting its nest. Sometimes it attacks people who unknowingly walk by under its nest.
