The other day while I was trying for some more photos of White-cheeked Honeyeaters this Varied Triller (Lalage leucomela) came into the same tree and sat and looked at me for a few moments. I find that a head-on view is never the best for ID and the bird gave me just one chance of a photo from the side view. I know these birds are around here but I more often hear them than see them. My birding book describes the bird as an unobtrusive small cuckoo-shrike 18-21cms.
