Another "cookillaria", breeding in the Southwest Pacific from the Chathams north, and dispersing northwards. The broad black diagonal bar on the underwing gives it the name, this and the grey cap and collar are diagnostic. Fairly common north of New Zealand, the birds on Norfolk Island nest under the resident's houses!
