Named for the array of colors they display, this beautiful species is one of the most colorful of the avics. As we frequently see within this genus, coloration changes during development and they tend to display the brightest colors as spiderlings and juveniles. They are agile and fast. Some report this species to be more defensive as adults than most others in this genus. They are a joy to watch grow and you will see changes with each molt.
