Southern Whiteface

Aphelocephala leucopsis (Gould, J 1841)

the southern whiteface is a small passerine found in arid regions across most of the southern half of the continent, excluding Tasmania. Superficially finch-like in appearance, this insectivorous bird is relatively common throughout most of its range, however, overall populations appear to be in decline. Source: Wikipedia
