Scientific name
Manorina melanophrys

Great shot of the Bell Miner. I have tried many times to capture a decent shot of one, but their ability to become inconspicuous amongst the foliage has beaten me.
Thanks Julien

I know what you mean. The bird call is indelibly linked in my mind with walking through the bush on hot summer days since as early as I can remember. However it was only until about a year ago that I knew which bird made it, let alone get a decent shot of one.
