A gray-brown flycatcher endemic to the Abyssinian highlands. Darker on the upperparts and paler below with a distinctive white eye. Found in montane habitats including woodland, forest edge, and lush gardens. Could be confused with African Gray or Pale Flycatchers, but found in different habitats, and easily identified by the pale eye. Found in the same areas as African Dusky Flycatcher, but larger, with a pale eye.
