Juvenile Figbird

I thought this was a young noisy miner, as it appeared from among a mob of them in the park. But it doesn’t look much like other images of young noisy miners on the web.

It turns out it is a Figbird (Sphecotheres vielloti) — thanks to information graciously provided by the Museum.
