Diet and Foraging
Microhabitat for Foraging
Forages mostly in the understory up to 20 m from the ground. On Talaud, it was recorded foraging in the substage and midstory of the forest canopy.
Food Capture and Consumption
The species feeds by sallying (67) and usually forages alone, in pairs, or within mixed-species flocks. Subspecies talautensis was considered to be less active while foraging than the Cerulean Flycatcher (Eutrichomyias rowleyi) and Pale-blue Monarch (Hypothymis puella) (68).
Primarily forages on various insects. A male collected on Samar (KUBI 131900) had small insects in its stomach.
