Poisonous Birds

I heard that the first poisonous birds had been discovered (for the western world anyway) in Papua New Guinea a couple of years ago.
They were supposed to have black feathers and yellow feathers and the poison was said to exude from the skin around the shaft of the feather.
Has anyone else heard of this?

Yup. The birds are called Pitohuis, and they are the subject of quite a bit of research.

This link includes some photos of the birds.

Apparently, there’s also the Blue-Capped Ifrita (Ifrita kowaldi), also from New Guinea.

What a fascinating article! Thanks!
