Ambiguous-looking forest-dweller; loosely resembling a cross between a monarch and a paradise-flycatcher. Some males have warm rufous brown wings and clean white bellies, but--despite the name--some are gray-blue all over. Female is grayish above with an off-white throat and rufous wings and tail. Typically hunts from a perch at lower to middle levels of lowland and hill forests. Song is a pair of whistled notes: “whee-wheeep”. Also chatters harshly.
