Habitat: Wet montane evergreen rainforest. Bird's position in habitat: high. A lek of about a dozen adult and sub-adult males. The calling is accompanied by frenzied courtship display. A low, mechanical, throbbing whistle can be heard in the background. This song has been attributed by some to Pitohui cristatus.
