The Golden-fronted Bowerbird, Amblyornis flavifrons is a medium-sized, approximately 24cm long, brown bowerbird. The male is rufous brown with an elongated golden crest extending from its golden forehead, dark grey feet and buffish yellow underparts. The female is an unadorned olive brown bird.

An Indonesian endemic, the male builds a tower-like "maypole-type" bower decorated with colored fruit.

Originally described in 1895 based on trade skins, this elusive bird remains mystery for nearly a hundred years, until 1981 when the American scientist Jared Diamond discovered the home ground of the Golden-fronted Bowerbird at Foja Mountains in Papua.

In December 2005, led by Bruce Beehler, an international team of eleven scientists from the United States, Australia and Indonesia traveled to the unexplored areas of Foja Mountains and took the first photographs of the bird.

The Golden-fronted Bowerbird is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
