A fairly small, long-tailed bird of lowland and foothill forest on Bohol, Leyte, and Samar islands. Overall dull blue in color with a paler belly. Often pumps tail up and down. Forages in the understory for insects and often joins mixed-species flocks. Similar in size and shape to Celestial, Short-crested, and Black-naped Monarchs, but darker blue with a contrasting pale blue brow, tail, and wing patch. Song is a slightly ascending series of medium-pitched, upslurred whistled notes, increasing in volume. Also gives a nasal, buzzing “gew!”
