At the Detroit Zoo
The red-billed leiothrix can be found inside the Matilda R. Wilson Free-Flight Aviary, where more than 20 species of birds are free to fly, walk or swim among the cover of lush tropical plants in a warm and inviting climate.
The red-billed leiothrix has a golden throat, orange or red breast and yellow wings. The female has a blue mark, and the male has a red mark.
The red-billed leiothrix emits a loud musical song with alternating high and low notes.
The red-billed leiothrix prefers to live in a flock, so it is rarely seen alone.
Both the male and the female help contribute to building the nest.
