Unsure of my ID of this bird. It sung a really beautiful song, which (believe it or not) I was able to whistle back to it. It came down the tree to see what idiot was trying to copy him....very plain bird, but a true singer.

When Ross is back he will do an ID for me.....TIA...

??Grey Shrike-Thrush??
I haven't seen these birds around here but it wouldn't be the White Breasted Robin as they are only known around south east coast of Western Australia, but it certainly looks like it is the Grey Shrike-Thrush & they are known widely all through the eastern half of Australia & across the top as well.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
