Spot on Jackie! Your first image was too dark to be confident it was a Black-faced Monarch and the second shot was too blurry. But I exported your first image into my image processing program and bumped up the brightness. That did the trick! I could see that beautiful big black eye, the black face and the rufous breast.

You could always do this yourself and replace your first image.

That’s clearly a Black-faced Monarch now, Jackie! Well done!
