Golden Whistler

The most common land bird on Lord Howe Island is the Golden Whistler, a distinct sub-species of the mainland bird. The LHI Golden Whistler has a broader black band under the white throat. The beautiful undulating song and musical call can be heard in thick shrubbery all over the island. I was lucky this one sang in the frangipani tree next to our cottage, Stuart whistled back to him long enough for me to catch this lovely picture.
