Hi folks,

I was in Wangaratta (northern Victoria) last Sunday to perform in a choir
concert. As we were waiting outside the church in the beautiful sunshine,
of course I was watching the local bird life. Besides a few yellow
rosellas, I saw a few of something else which I wasn't able to ID. Not
having my binocs with me, I didn't get a very good view, but they were
about thornbill-sized, and quite yellow on the front. Their call (from
memory - I'm not too good at calls) was a regular sound, something like the
noise made by an agitated budgie but not so harsh. Any ideas?
