Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Slim, long-tailed, all-black flycatcher with a pale yellow eye. Found along the edge and in clearings within Albertine Rift montane forest. Single birds of pairs perch out on conspicuous perches, sometimes quite low. Calls include low chuckling notes and a high, thin whistle; the song is a whispy, complex mix of high-pitched notes. Distinguished from all similar black birds by its pale eye.
