I don't know what the 'Golden Warbler' is - my copy of Simpson and Day
(Field Guide to Birds of Australia - fifth edition) doesn't list this
vernacular name, but there are various Greygones (Acanthizinae) and Old
World Warblers (Sylviidae) which have 'warbler' in the common name.

I suspect it is the Golden-crowned Cisticola (Cisticola exilis). Note that the site states that the bird is "also known as a sesticlar" [sic!!!!].
