ALA reference

This is a bird that loves the rainforest or other heavily timbered areas. It spends almost all its time in the trees and rarely ventures onto the ground. It can often be seen hopping up tree-trunks and even performing the seemingly impossible feat of hopping up the underside of branches searching for ants or other insects.
