Satin Flycatchers are almost never still. They dart from branch to branch or make dashing flights to catch insects. Even when they land on a branch they are continually on the move, wagging the tail from side to side or quivering it up and down. Male Satin Flycatchers have a glossy blue-black head, breast and upperparts, which give the species its name, contrasting with the white plumage of its underparts, while female birds have prominent brownish-orange feathers on the throat and chin.
