This bird fled past me quickly

I managed to get a quick picture of this bird at Amamoor Gympie QLD yesterday. Do you happen to know what it is ?

Yeah or Blue-faced Honeyeater?

Or White-throated Honeyater also depending on size.

It has white and black colour on its face, picture is blur due to slow speed setting.

Crested Shrike-tit!?

From the beak shape, a pardalote maybe?

Tegan - Melbourne Vic.

I also think it could be a Crested-shrike Tit, but it is very hard to tell what it is for sure because it is blurry.

Underwing pattern (or lack thereof) and tail length in relation to body are wrong for Blue-faced Honeyeater, certainly not a Pardalote (sorry Teagan), hard to rule out Crested Shrike Tit completely but I think the apparent small head and overall jizz is better for White-throated Honeyeater.

I'd guess same as Snail - White Throated Honeyeater
