I'll merge spottings with the previous female I saw the day before

I'd concur, juvenile female spotted pardalote

Definitely a female pardalote. I'm 98% certain it is the spotted and not the striated.

I suspect that it may be a species of Pardalote, as I had 'spotted' some the previous day in a nearby location

That should read "or a species of Pardalote"

I think it's a juvenile, did it sing? I can narrow it down to a Mistletoebird, a White-fronted Chat or a species or Pardalote.

MakOnJi, not that I could tell, it was constantly on the move

Not too sure, possibly a Mistletoebird? Did it have a red ass?
