Hello everyone,
                I just found this list when I was looking for info on olive 
(pachycephala olivacea) and simerler spicies.  
        A new bird has turned up in my garden, mostly heard not seen.  I acually
saw it for the first time yesterday.  The closest thing I could find in any
of my (ageing) bird books is an olive wistler.  It's listed as being a rare
species so I thought prehaps it's something else, there are allot of othere
simler Pachycephala spieces aren't there?  My books list 2 others the
gloden and rufous wistlers, I'm pertty shure it's nither of them.  Any
ideas on what else it might be?
        I might have a photo of this little rascle, but hand holding a 300mm 
isn't really a good idea, so I might not... :-(
