The black-and-red  creature is a big broadbill with unusual plumage that is difficult to be confused with any other species in its habitat.

The typical adult measures 21–24 cm (8.3–9.4 in) long, with wing dimensions of 9.7–10.8 cm (3.8–4.3 in), and masses 51–65 g (1.8–2.3 oz).

Adults have greenish-black top parts with a crimson half-collar and brilliant maroon backsides and upper tail coverts, as well as blackheads and breast bands.

The borders of the scapulars are pure white, producing a white line on the folded wing.

The bill is two-toned, with a turquoise-blue maxilla and a bright orange mandible with a turquoise tip and margins.

The irises are an emerald green color.

Juveniles have sooty brown upper parts, maroon bands on the shoulder and upper tail hides, brown underparts plus wings.

These birds may be seen in tropical and subtropical wet lowland forests, as well as tropical and subtropical mangrove swamps, and they are constantly near water.

These birds mostly consume insects, although they also consume mollusks, crabs, and tiny fish.
