Zenfolio | Roger MacKertich Photography | Black-faced Monarch

The movements of the Black-faced Monarch are reasonably well known, with the species flying across Torres Strait from their wintering grounds in southern New Guinea to their breeding areas in eastern Australia. Sometimes the route taken by individual birds may go astray, and some have ended up outside their usual range. Birds have turned up accidentally in northern and western Victoria and in southern South Australia, but some have been recorded travelling even further afield, with vagrants recorded in Western Australia and New Zealand!
