Halmahera Flowerpecker

Dicaeum schistaceiceps

The Halmahera flowerpecker, with its scientific name Dicaeum schistaceiceps, is a diminutive and vibrant bird belonging to the Dicaeidae family. This avian species is adorned with a plumage that harmonizes with the lush forests of North Maluku, Indonesia.

Identification Tips

When endeavoring to identify the Halmahera flowerpecker, one should note its petite stature and the subtle yet distinctive coloration that sets it apart from its avian counterparts. It was once considered conspecific with the Buru flowerpecker, suggesting similarities that may aid in identification.


The Halmahera flowerpecker is a denizen of the subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, as well as the subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. These habitats provide the perfect backdrop for this species, offering a rich tapestry of biodiversity.


This species is a native resident of North Maluku, Indonesia, where it flits through the forest canopies of its island home.

Conservation status

The Halmahera flowerpecker is currently listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List. This status indicates that, for now, the species is not at immediate risk of decline, allowing bird enthusiasts to breathe a sigh of relief for the continued presence of this charming bird in our world's forests.

The best bird logging app
Birda is honestly the best bird logging app I have seen. I love all the features it has from being able to do a session and log all the birds you see in one sitting, to being able to connect with other birders from all over the globe!

Clean and easy to use
Really enjoying this app, it's clean and easy to use. I love the ease of being able to add those one-off birds without starting a whole checklist. I also like the social aspect, like the parts of my Facebook I like, without the ads and junk, just birds. Can't wait to see it become more populated.
