There are 26 known species of Pittas and three of these live here in Australia. The Rainbow Pitta is endemic to northwestern Australia and is the closest relative to the Noisy Pitta. They are beautifully coloured small birds that stand about 15 centimetres tall and 'hop' about the forest floor. There is not a whole lot known about these shy little birds.
