|Black-faced Monarch Monarcha
The Black-faced Monarch is distributed in eastern Australia. Some of its movements are little known but its summer range extends south to east of Melbourne. These birds migrate north during the austral winter and some birds overwinter in Papua New Guinea. The population in eastern Queensland seems to be made up of resident birds plus migrating birds depending on the time of year.
|It is not a very active
flycatcher and tends to catch its prey of insects and spiders on
branches and leaves rather than catching them on the wing.
