Spotworthy: This species has black-to-brown shading on its back-and-white coloring on its breast and trunk. Their chests have scattered black spots with two bands crossing its front – one band is a wide black strip under the chin and another is in the shape of an upside down horseshoe on the stomach. They've also got very dense feathers and the stereotypical tuxedo attire with white belly and black back.
