The Ua Pou monarch (Pomarea mira), was a species of monarch flycatcher in the Monarchidae family. It is endemic to French Polynesia. Its natural habitats were subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and heavily degraded former forest. It became extinct due to habitat loss. In 2010, an unconfirmed but convincing report of a male was observed on Ua Pou, based on this possible rediscovery, the status of possibly extinct seems more appropriate.
