Jobi Manucode

The Jobi Manucode (Manucodia jobiensis) is a medium-sized, up to 34 cm long, greenish blue, black and purple-glossed crow-like bird-of-paradise with red iris, lightly crinkled bluish short upper breast and neck feathers. Both sexes are similar with a slightly smaller and duller female.

This species resembles the Crinkle-collared Manucode in appearance, distinguished by its neck feathers and by having a shorter tail than the latter species. Like other manucodes, it is monogamous.

The Jobi Manucode is distributed in lowland forests of Jobi Island and northern New Guinea. The diet consists mainly of fruits and arthropods.

One of the most common birds-of-paradise in its range, the Jobi Manucode is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is listed on Appendix II of CITES.
