I’d been hearing a bird song I’d not heard around here before, but remembered from many years ago. I went in hunt of it and found this bird which I followed to this tree before I could get shots of it. Easy to see how it can be missed sitting in a tree with its colouring.
The Grey Shrikethrush or Grey Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla harmonica), formerly commonly known as Grey Thrush, is one of the best-loved and most distinctive songbirds of Australasia. It is moderately common to common in most parts of Australia, but absent from the driest of the inland deserts.
