Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A rather long-tailed and long-winged bird with a short stubby head, similar in proportions to a small cuckooshrike. Plumage distinctively clean-cut in black and white, with mostly black upperside and white underside. Black cap reaches the eye. Wings have large white panels. Found in lowland and mountain forest, especially forest edge. Similar to Polynesian Triller, but lacks that species’ white eyebrow, barred underparts, and generally more “messy” appearance. Common melodious song can be rendered as “tee-zeeia-tee-zeeia-tee-zeeia.”
