Ogea Flycatcher

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. The species is little known, it feeds on insects and is thought to breed around July. The species is not thought to be threatened by habitat loss, instead it is considered vulnerable due to its tiny range and the prospect of introduced predators hunting it. It has been proposed that extra populations be established on other islands to act as a safeguard. It does not have a local name.

The Ogea Flycatcher is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

Some, such as the Ogea Flycatcher have very restricted ranges, just a few square kilometres. Many of the more spectacular birds such as the Blue-crested Broadbill, the Yellow-breasted Musk Parrot and the Orange Dove are rarely seen by casual observers because they are confined to forests and are never seen in open habitats. Fortunately, there are exceptions, a good example being the Kula or Collared Lory. This spectacular little parrot is equally at home in central Suva as in the forested interior. More
