Grey shrike thrush ?

Hello there. Could someone please verify (or not) that this is a Grey shrike thrush.
Thanks for your comments.

Hi Daggert,

the size of the bill suggests that it would be more likely to be a whistler sp. Possibly female Golden Whistler, the slight brown on the wings is also a factor.

Hope this helps.

I agree with Birdfreak. Whistler.
Habitat seems to make it more likely to be Golden, rather than Rufous. But there is insufficient view of underside to make that definitive, in my opinion.
Cheers

Agree, Whistler, I'd also tend towards a Golden.
