Spectacled Monarchs are small insectivorus birds found in the east of Australia along the coast from Far North Queensland down to Northern NSW. They are similar to the Black-faced Monarch, but can be told by the Spectacled having reddish feathers on the face and the black mask extending through the eye and beyond. Another useful pointer are the white tail tips to the outermost three feathers on the Spectacled Monarch. They are generally found in rainforest and dense wet eucalypt forests. Southern populations are migratory, moving north in winter. 14-16 cm.
