SPECIES INFO

The Jobi Manucode, Manucodia jobiensis is a medium-sized, up to 34cm long, greenish blue, black and purple glossed crow-like bird of paradise with red iris, lightly crinkled bluish short upper breast and neck feathers. Both sexes are similar with slightly smaller and duller female.

This species resembles the Crinkle-collared Manucode in appearance, distinguished by its neck feathers and for having shorter tail than the latter species. As other manucodes, male is monogamous.

The Jobi Manucode is distributed in lowland forests of Jobi Island and northern New Guinea. The diet consists mainly of fruits and arthropods.

One of the most common bird of paradise in its range, the Jobi Manucode is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is listed on Appendix II of CITES.
