Golden Whistler [pectoralis]

Pachycephala pectoralis [pectoralis] (= Pachycephala pectoralis pectoralis) (Latham, 1801)

The Australian golden whistler or golden whistler, is a species of bird found in forest, woodland, mallee, mangrove and scrub in Australia Most populations are resident, but some in south-eastern Australia migrate north during the winter. Its taxonomy is highly complex and remains a matter of dispute, with some authorities including as many as 59 subspecies of the golden whistler, while others treat several of these as separate species.
