We are mostly not ornithologists and are often confused between wingy species that look similar. Nevertheless, once you see these unique little guys with cartoon-like plumage as if painted black and yellow, you will never forget or mistake them for any other birds on the planet.

Meet the black-and-yellow broadbill (Eurylaimus ochromalus), a species in the typical broadbill family suboscine passerine birds! These broadbills are utterly unmistakable in their costume of black, white, yellow, and pink and have bright blue, wide, deep-based bills, typical of the broadbills.

The black-and-yellow broadbill is found in Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore, and Brunei. This bird mainly feeds on insects and forages at middle to high levels in lowland and hill forests, frequently moving with mixed-species flocks and sallying out from a perch.

Their song is disproportionately loud, a series of high-pitched coos that increases in pitch and speed, turning into a maddened series of loud whistles. Frequently, they give a jay-like “jeer!” call.

The black-and-yellow broadbill’s breeding season starts with the arrival of the dry season. Wing displays have been observed being performed by both sexes before mating. Nests are built by both sexes and are typically located at the edges of clearings or above streams in obstacle-free sites but can be parasitized by cuckoos.

This species is listed as being near-threatened on the IUCN Red List. Its population is declining fairly quickly due to habitat loss caused by logging, land conversion, and wildfires.
