A female shining flycatcher (Myiagra alecto) sits atop her nest in the mangrove forests of the Northern Territory. Both sexes of this specieparticipate in nest-building and feeding of the young, but the male wasn’t around at this time. In contrast to the lightly colored females, males are uniformly dark with an iridescent blue tint.
