Rocky Hall, NSW, Australia. There are several pairs of shrike-tits around our weekender at Rocky Hall at this time of year, though we haven't recognised any breeding activity as yet. I find they can easily be whistled in, but tend to perch way above you typically against the sun, like this male is doing.
