Golden Whistler

It's lovely to see so many birds returning to the valley and this afternoon I spent an hour or so wandering around the gardens with the camera.  Spotted this 'new' (for me) bird next to one of the bungalows and I am fairly sure it is a Golden Whistler, probably a female juvenile.   (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).  We have often seen Grey Whistlers here but I read that the Golden species normally inhabits higher rainforest although they sometimes come down to the coastal rainforest during winter.
