Sorry I am late on this stream - haven't been on line.

We have Shining Flycatchers which inhabit a length of the Maroochy River in 
south east Queensland.   Their territory seems quite large - perhaps one and a 
half kilometres of river bank.   If we see them at one site, they are absent 
from the other, and this has gone on for years, so we THINK it is the same 
pair.   One of the areas they are from time to time is the Wetlands Sanctuary 
at Bli Bli.  The area they frequent normally is within about fifty metres of 
the river, or the riverbank itself, but at Easter they moved further inland - 
probably 150 metres from the water, but still in mangroves.   I watched the 
female for quite a while, but when she moved off and I chased her, I found the 
male instead.

Don't see them nearly often enough.   They are just beautiful.
