This small flycatcher frequents lush coastal and montane mist-belt regions and well wooded gardens. It is olive-grey above with a faintly streaked crown - buff-white eye-ring - below dusky with faint smudges (not streaks). It is quiet and unobtrusive and is usually noticed when hawking prey. Common summer visitor. Unobtrusive unless calling - the male and female differs completely.
