Bowerbird, tooth-billed.jpg

The tooth-billed bowerbird (Scenopoeetes dentirostris) also known as stagemaker bowerbird and tooth-billed catbird is a medium-sized, approximately 27 centimetres (11 in) long, stocky olive-brown bowerbird with brown-streaked buffish white below, grey feet, brown iris and unique tooth-like bill. Both sexes are similar, however the female is slightly smaller than the male. It is the only member in monotypic genus Scenopoeetes (Say it: see-NOH-POH-EET-EEZE). An Australian endemic, the tooth-billed bowerbird is distributed to mountain forests of northeast Queensland. Its diet consists mainly of fruits and young leaves of forest trees.
