With respect this is not a Mistletoe Bird. It is a good image of Melanodryas cucullata, Hooded Robin. It is a male bird. ( I cannot make the Moderator action button respond)

Thanks, I did edit this to ensure the right comment was with the right bird, but for some reason the edit has not come through. I will try to edit again.
I was also unable to confirm Erna's Diamond Firetail last night, there must be a gremlin in the system

I think there are some taxonomy issues still being worked through with the platform update that is looking at a national rollout. Hopefully these will be sorted soon. Nice photo of Hooded Robins.
