CommentNoisy scrub-bird, female, (male has black patch on upper breast extending in a point up the centre of the throat) moving silently through stunted eucalypt on a cloudy dull day around 2pm. I initially thought it was a Western Bristlebird, of which I had seen comparatively many in the past week, until checking images later that night only to recognise the head shape. That made all three skulkers, NSB, WBB and Western Whipbird. I was a mighty lucky lad. I would appreciate recommendations on noise reduction and general detail improvement.
