The larger Crested Berrypecker is 19–22 cm in length and weighs 36–61 g. The variation in size in the Crested Berrypecker is due to differences in altitude (Rapoport's rule), with birds being larger at higher altitudes. Both species have short necks, moderately long and broad rounded wings, and plump bodies. The tails vary between the two species, with the Tit Berrypecker having a short square one and that of the Crested Berrypecker being longish. In both species the short bill is strong and black. More

The Crested Berrypecker is a medium-sized bird of striking color pattern (as shown in the photo) that has an erectible crest (not shown). It is found in high mountain forests only: from the upper montane zone (above 2500m = above 8000 ft.) to timberline in the Central Range of New Guinea and on the Huon Peninsula. My encounter with this elegant bird was high in the Snow Mountains above the Baliem Valley. More
