It has stunning soft plumage which is mostly black however the wings are littered with soft grey feathers. The chest is an array of colourful of blue, green and reddish yellows. It may seem similar to the guinea fowl, but has long legs and neck.
Of course with the name of a trumpeter, it does have a birdsong, which is soft humming. However, its call is quite the opposite as a loud, almost honking shriek.
