Black-faced Monarch


The Black-faced Monarchs have arrived at Nangara Reserve, Jindivick. I’m not sure they arrive every year – I’ve ticked them twice in the last four seasons but I may have missed them a couple of times. Some of the literature says they only get this far down the eastern seaboard occasionally.

Monarchs are flycatchers, taking their prey from the foliage and branches and sometimes on the wing.

It is their definitive call that generally alerts you to their presence  – graemechapman
