Ioras, Leafbirds and Bluebirds
This family is widespread in the Oriental Region amd well represented in Borneo; it comprises three groups, the general color being black and blue in Irena, black and yellow-green or olive-green in Segithins, and bright grass-green in Chloropsis. They are forest birds, though some of the ioras also frequent cultivated country and gardens, and feed mainly on fruit. (Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)
