Like other monarchs and flycatchers, the Black-faced Monarch has bristles around its bill to help it catch insects. The Black-faced Monarch has a distinctive black face that does not extend across the eyes, grey upperparts, wings and upper breast, contrasting with a rufous (red-orange) belly. The dark eye has a thin black eye ring and a lighter area of pale grey around it. The blue-grey bill has a hooked tip. Young birds are similar but lack the black face, have a black bill and tend to have a brownish body and wings. The Black-faced Monarch is one of the monarch flycatchers, a forest and woodland-dwelling group of small insect-eating birds, and is strictly arboreal (found in trees). They are found in rainforest, eucalypt woodlands, coastal scrub and damp gullies. (Source: Australian Museum, 2018.), (Image: David Cook).
