Excluding the Philippine leafbird (Chloropsis flavipennis), the species are distinguished by contrasting head patterns, often involving black throats, and bright blue "moustaches" (malar stripes). Most females do not have black throats, but maintain either the "moustaches" or a blue throat. Another distinction of the males of most species are shiny malachite-green "epaulets" at the bend of the wing. The build manages to be at once graceful and compact. Tails are of moderate length.

Our final morning gave time for some final birding at PICOP and we began predawn, again hearing both boobooks but seeing only Philippine Nightjar. More
