The color of the body is dark steely Indigo blue with some violet-blue on the forehead and darker lores. It has long tail with two blue central tail Feathers and the Dark Brown and edged with indigo lateral feathers. The wing feathers are dark brown with a narrow outer fringe of blue. 

They diet includes small invertebrates and some fruit, particularly berries.
