The female of the Golden-fronted Leafbird is green and simple, it looks more like a leaf so it can be hidden all the time. Nature has its own brilliant idea in which the female that carries the offspring os the next generation is always not attractive as the male. If something happens, like a predator comes, the male gets the attraction all the time since it is more colourful and and attractive, leaving the female to run away or hide.

There are more Leafbirds to discover and I am excited to find them. They must have different ways in which they would look something like leaves and camouflage within the habitat.
