John, I think this could be a Satin Flycatcher, note obtuse angle between line of breast and line of edge of wing. Your thoughts please. Chris

Viewing the female on nest, which is certainly a Leaden, indicates that you are correct and that this is the Leaden male.

I pondered this one. I first thought the male was a satin but the female and the location suggested leaden. I didn't see the male visit the nest. Leadens nested a few metres away last year.

I thought this looked more like Leaden, although not certain. Chris, what features do you use to distinguish female Leaden and Satin Flycatchers so readily?
