The family name of the bird has been included because it is an important piece of information for the field observer. Within the family, each bird is placed in a genus. This subdivision is the first of the bird's two Latin names, which is often called the bird's scientific name. Some birds are unique, with no dose relatives. They are monotypic and in some instances form their own genus; we try to point that out in relevant cases. The second half of the Latin name describes the species. Many birds occur in distinct forms and are divided by taxonomists into separate subspecies or races that are designated by a third addition to the Latin name.

Breeding can occur during any month of the year, but often seems to occur just prior to the rainy season. Nests are difficult to find in the tropics, since many birds build high in remote forest areas and within dense foliage. Even so, the breeding season can be an interesting time for the birdwatcher, because males tend to defend their territory more aggressively and call more often. The birds are also somewhat bolder and easier to observe at this time. Although vast local variations occur, November through February (and especially the month of December) seems to be the period with the highest rainfall throughout Indonesia.
