@@elefromoz You're half right. It's an immature male Golden Whistler. Compare it to the male in the images directly above and you can see the adult plumage starting to come through.

 

A great selection of garden birds.

 

Btw... I've heard that female Golden whistlers are the most misidentified Aussie bird.

Thanks @@Geoff, so I have the Male and the immature Male. Challenge, to find the Female ( and see how many times I get it wrong)
