A winter visitor

In recent days I’ve heard the melodic song of a Golden Whistler in the home garden. This winter migrant is currently sharing the local area with our resident Rufous Whistlers, also beautiful songsters. The bird pictured below is a female most likely – the pale lemon wash on the vent is just discernible.
