Paperbark Flycatcher

Myiagra nana


This is the smaller northern Australian sub-species, nana, which has a smaller bill and has the glossy blue-black colouring extending further down the back than the Restless Flycatcher. It has a glossy blue-black head, with a small crest, and is white below, from the chin to the undertail, with a blue-black bill surrounded by bristles. The back, wings and tail are darker grey and there may be a slight orange brown tint on the breast.


There were two flying around together in sparse scrubland along a track at Goombaragin Eco Retreat.

Cheers Vinny! I would love to add to your mission, thank you for asking :) You have actually brought something up I've been meaning to ask someone on here...why are we able to only add to 5 missions? There are times I would like to add to more like 6 or 7 but am unable.....
