Surely the two Coolart thornbills are Striated Thornbills.

I only looked at one, but it appears to have no chest streaking, is olive-yellowish overall (like Yellows are in the south), and has the little cheek patch of striations.  Looks like a Yellow to me ...

but then I looked at the first one - striated crown!  ... clearly a Striated.
