Just received this message from Theo Groenestein and wondered if anyone would like to have a crack at ID of the bird (unfortunately I am unfamiliar with WA but I think that it is probably a whistler (Pachycephala sp))

I shot this bird in the Leeuwin-Naturalist NP in the vicinity of the Ngilgi Cave. I thought that it would be a robin or a whistler but despite checking HANZAB I can not find a bird with the same rufous shoulder/wing patch as the photographed bird. I wonder if you could pass this on to someone more familiar with that area or make a suggestion of where I could look a bit further into identification of this bird.

There is a link to the image
