Myiagra rubecula concinna
First time seeing this bird! This is a male Leaden Flycatcher which is "mainly dark blue grey above and white below, with a small crest and a broad black-tipped blue bill surrounded by small bristles. It is sexually dimorphic (two forms), with males having entirely dark blue-grey upperparts, head and chest[.]" (Birdlife Australia: http://www.birdlife.org.au/bird-profile/... )
Sitting quietly on the branch of this tree on the outside of the fence surrounding the waste water wetlands.
