YELLOW-BREASTED BOATBILL
Machaerirhynchus flaviventer 12 cm

          In Australia the Yellow-breasted Boatbill is restricted to north Queensland.

            It is a flycatcher that forages mainly in the middle storey of rainforests.

        The male is mainly black and yellow, with a wide bill and often a cocked tail.  
        The female is duller.    

       The call is a soft ‘pee-dee-dee-dee-wit’.

       Usually in pairs, it is an active feeder in foliage.  It also hawks flying insects.

        Near Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge it is moderately common.
