Denise, I have never posted to this listserve before so if this does not go 
through, please pass it on.

Thank you all for the help regarding the id of what it seems was most probably 
a Rufus Whistler. It was amongst Striated Thornbills. I used the wording "all 
around me" when to exact, they were more above me. There are a whole group of 
shots of Striated beginning with this one all from 
Black Hill Reserve in Kyneton, VIC where these sightings took place.

The size of the bird in question was possibly a problem. As I said, it landed 
above me and I snapped a few quick photos before it flitted off. Size-wise it 
was small. In the moment, and viewed through the viewfinder, it seemed about 
the size of the thornbills, but in retrospect... it could have been and 
probably was, a bit larger.

Thank you again Denise and all y'all!
R. Bruce Richardson
