I would certainly agree with Jack that having two males together unusual. Interestingly though, this aspect asked below has been described before. See the relevant extract from The GBS Report (this bit in red). Indeed as casual comment, a far greater proportion of the Golden Whistlers that I see in bush settings are adult males than in suburbia. I think Mathew means making sightings, rather than making sitings (making a place).
Golden Whistler Pachycephala pectoralis
altitudinal migrant that is a common species in the forest ranges in the summer
time and is common around
And the ref is:
and the behaviour differences were that males tend to forage higher in the canopy than juveniles or the adult females and are less likely to join mixed species flocks.
-----Original Message-----From: pardalote [ Sent: Wednesday, 18 April 2012 7:06 PMI have read a few posts and discovered many people are making sitings of mature male golden whistlers. I was wondering in which locations and habitats am I most likely to find one? Would the local creek (Ginninderra) do?

I was reminded by Milburn’s posting last night that on Sunday afternoon I had two male Golden Whistlers calling loudly in the mixed feeding flock in my GBS site in Chapman, together with a female/immature. While the latter has been more conspicuous this year than for quite a few years, I certainly found having two males together unusual.
