Author's notes

This bird is recovering from crashing into a house window and then settling on the adjacent almond tree. At first it sat looking stunned with its beak open. By the time of the photo, it was moving a bit, and had beak shut.

I can't see the bird very clearly, but I am pretty confident its not a Western Gerygone. Possibly a female Golden Whistler?
