Restless Flycatcher

Myiagra inquieta

The Restless Flycatcher is a woodland inhabitant and, typical of altitudinal migrants, it is a winter rather than a summer visitor to Canberra. From a low in November, numbers increase steadily to a peak in July before a more rapid decline as birds move away to breed in the less disturbed woodland and riverine habitats outside the city. Records suggest that Restless Flycatchers move around in the suburbs. Numbers have fluctuated widely during the survey with no suggestion of any trend. R=104.
