Golden Whistler

If you hear a delightfully tuneful whistle, a repeated ‘chewit’ call, throughout spring, you should be able to easily locate the beautiful golden whistler in the mid canopy. His female partner also whistles but she is dull grey, in stark contrast to his brilliant plumage. These colourful songsters are often admired and enjoyed in the gardens of residents in this area.
