The crown and nape are crimson, the mantle and wings are green, with a yellowish rump and whitish underparts, the tail and bill are blackish and there is black marking around its white eye.

It is usually a shy bird but can draw attention with their loud call that can be heard as a far-carrying laugh or "yaffle".
