User's notes

This immature bird seems incredibly early if out of the nest or incredibly late not to be adult plummage.

If it seems out of season, perhaps its a white-bellied cuckooshrike?

I will put up the second photo I took of it, from the other side, even though its not as good as this one. Doesn't look like the White Bellied's I've seen on the NSW coast. It had other birds around it - another like this and what I thought was an adult Blacked Faced Cuckoo Shrike. There was a bird calling of this size/colour underneath that I couldn't get a good look at in different places. It had a call that sounded like a Rosella!
