GOLDEN WHISTLER
Pachycephala pectoralis 17 cm

         In Australia the Golden Whistler is distributed widely in forests and woodlands of
       the east.

         In north Queensland it occurs mainly in upland rainforests.

    The sulphur-yellow and olive-green body plumage, with a white throat and black head markings, make the male conspicuous. The female is drably garbed in olive-greys and very pale yellows.

    It has a melodic ‘wi-wi-wi-wi-whit’ call, which sometimes ends with a whip-crack. 

     It is easily observed at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge .
