Gray Shrike Thrush?

Hello, I saw this bird in october in the coastal heath near the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse, Geographe Bay, Western Australia. The red eyes, light bill, and yellow in the throat have me thrown off of being certain it's a gray shrike-thrush. Any chance it's a rufous whistler?

Yes, it's a Grey Shrikethrush, the bill is too big for a Rufous Whistler.
