Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Male is a black-and-white songbird with a uniform blackish-blue upperside and gleaming white underparts. Female and juvenile are gray above with a peach wash on throat and breast. Usually found in pairs in lowlands and foothills, inhabiting a variety of habitats with trees, like mangroves, plantations, and forest edge, typically in the understory and subcanopy. Male Moluccan Flycatcher distinguished from female Shining Flycatcher by uniformly dark back. White throat distinguishes male from Black-chinned and Black-tipped Monarchs. Gives a strident, ringing, uniformly-pitched “wit-wit-wit-wit-wit” song as well as rasping, metallic “wheer” calls.
