Samoan Whistler

Pachycephala flavifrons (Peale, 1848)

The Samoan Whistler (Pachycephala flavifrons), also known as the Yellow-fronted Whistler, is a species of bird in the Pachycephalidae family. It is endemic to Samoa, where found in forest, plantations and gardens. It resembles the Australian Golden Whistler, but the male has blacker upperparts, yellow or white to the forehead, a dull black throat that is strongly mottled with yellow or white, and no black chest-band. The female resembles a duller version of the male with a pale grey throat. Source: Wikipedia
