  • It is a flycatcher that forages mainly in the middle storey of rainforests.

  • The male is mainly black and yellow, with a wide bill and often a cocked tail.

  • The female is duller.    

  • The call is a soft ‘pee-dee-dee-dee-wit’.

  • Usually in pairs, it is an active feeder in foliage.  It also hawks flying insects.
