Jigsaw bird

Hoping someone can help with this bird jigsaw puzzle.

The puzzle comes in two parts - and because the photos were consecutive on my camera I'm assuming they were the same bird (also a bit of overlap with chest patterns).

Seen in Central Tablelands NSW in January.

Any ideas?

Hi Booshkie

Olive-backed oriole perhaps.

I think the eye is red which would fit if it is a oriole.

I also think the eye is red, but I have lightened up the photo from an even darker version (it was very overcast) and that may be a distortion.

Looking at the illustration in my Simpson and Day I'm thinking my bird's tail is too short for an Oriole.
