Dear List,

So, every once and a while I go back and check my reference photos for
my bird ID's. Recently I've been bothered by the following bird:

It was seen at the Cassowary House in Kuranda March 12, 2018.

After scouring the guides, I was pretty convinced it was Grey Whistler.
It was feeding close to the ground on this tree. seems to have pink legs. The legs of the Grey Whistler are
described as dark. I thought it might also be the Atherton Scrubwren,
though this isn't really in the Atherton Tablelands.

Any opinions on this one? Much appreciated!
