Any ideas?

ID?? by M Hooper, on Flickr IMG_7890 by M Hooper, on Flickr  Stumped by this one. That bit of white on the wing doesn't match up to my bird book (but then my bird book doesn't detail non-breeding plumage very well). Thanks!!!

It's a female or young Golden Whistler. Bill size is good indicator here for Whistler & the slight hint of yellow in vent area is a key feature for Golden Whistler.

Ah, that makes some sense, and explains the white on the wing, which was confusing me. Many thanks!
