Black Flycatcher

These are found in the northern and central region and along the eastern coast. They inhabit gardens, woodlands and forest edges.
 Breeding is in the summer and this one had two chicks in a nearby tree which she was busily feeding

They do not have any distinguishing features besides having a slightly notched tail. They feed on insects and the nectar of aloes.
