Hello Brian,
Your leaning is totally correct. Be confident! A nice photo too.
About being puffed up: It is a tiny bird and the weather is cold! Imagine being so tiny and maintaining a body heat slightly above ours. It is hard work being a little bird.

I have attached a photo of a bird that I took at Jerrabomberra Wetlands yesterday and am having trouble identifying it, mainly because of the way that it is puffed up in the photo.
I am leaning towards a Golden-headed Cisticola but am not confident.
Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated.
