The black-and-yellow broadbill (Eurylaimus ochromalus) is a species of bird in the Eurylaimidae family. It is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Thailand. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.

Description[edit]

The black-and-yellow broadbill could be mistaken for its cousin, the Banded broadbill , due to their similar coloring of black wings with yellow markings and bright blue beaks. However, the black-and-yellow (Eurylaimus ochromalus) has a pink chest and yellow belly, a black head, and a white collar.

Diet[edit]

The black-and-yellow broadbill feeds primarily on insects, especially orthopterans (grasshoppers, cicadas, etc.), mantises, and beetles.
