A strikingly beautiful flycatcher with a bright golden belly, a pure white face, and a black back, cap, and chest band. Tail black with white tip, rump white. Wings black with large white panels. Found in most wooded habitats up to 1200 meters of elevation, including gardens. Usually forages low down, frequently fanning its tail and always moving. Behavior separates it from the superficially similar Vanuatu Whistler. Common calls include a scolding “tze” and a long, quavering thin whistle.
