CommentThe pleasant call is one of my favourite bush sounds, sounding a little like an oriole to the unitiated. The Charcoal Tank Nature Reserve conserves a woodland of mugga iron bark and black cypress pine off the Newell Highway, and would no doubt be best visited when the ironbark is flowering in winter. I understand it is used as a banding site, and this bird has a band on its right leg (not visible in this photo, and not decipherable in any of my photos).
EquipmentCanon 90D; Canon EF 100-400 L Mk II zoom. 400mm, ISO 500, 1/1000s, f/5.6, processed in DxO Photolab
LocationCharcoal Tank nature reserve, near West Wyalong, New South Wales
