Little Wattlebird in eastern Australia; Brush Wattlebird in Western
Australia.  At the moment they're officially regarded as being the same
species, but that may change in the future to reflect other opinions to the
contrary.  Little Wattlebirds are quite common in Melbourne gardens.

Cheers, Lawrie
