Leiothrix lutea | red-billed leiothrix

Introduced

Other Names: Chinese hill robin, Pekin robin, Pekin nightingale, Japanese nightingale, Japanese hill robin

The red-billed leiothrix, or Chinese hill robin, is a beautiful and popular cage bird. This spunky bird is very noisy and can often be heard “scolding” human trespassers before they even knew one was nearby. They eat fruit and play a role in dispersing seeds throughout the forest. They only reach about 5 inches in length and are a green and yellow bird, distinguished by its name-sake red bill.
