Julian is right. It is identifiable as a Grey Shrike-thrush.
Not a Hooded Robin. Different shape, all dark tail, mostly grey with brown across wing greater coverts & upper back, no white patch in wing.

What about Female or Juvenile Hooded Robin?

On the 18 of Feb this year I saw a bird up Mt Majura nature reserve that I could not quite identify. It was flitting throughout the brush and it was hard to get many photos.
This photo is the only good one.
Could someone please identify it for me?
