Thanks GraFax. I didn't see (or hear) the male. A more colourful bird, compared to the female.Golden Whistler, female. Went to photograph a Pardalote or two, came back with a Golden Whistler. The Pardalotes had disappeared. Next time
Whistlers have a rather large, blocky head for their size, and a large eye. The scientific name for the genus, Pachycephala, means thick-head.
Nice photo. If I remember correctly the male Golden Whistlers are very lively singers. I had to google the Pardalotes. I don't recall seeing those.
