SPECIES INFO

The Sumatran Leafbird (Chloropsis media) is a species of bird in the Chloropseidae family. It is endemic to forest and plantations in Sumatra in Indonesia. It has often been included as a subspecies of the Golden-fronted Leafbird (C. aurifrons), but the two differ extensively in, among others, morphology, with the male of the Sumatran Leafbird having a yellow (not deep orange) forehead, and the female resembling a female Blue-winged Leafbird, but with a yellowish forecrown and no blue to the wings and tail (very different from the Golden-fronted Leafbird, where the male and female are very similar).
