The adult birds scurried off into the thicket leaving this bird. I thinks its a just out of the nest golden whistler.

Wow, I never knew that - the CSIRO field guide says the juvenile is uniformly rufous brown for a few days after fledging. Guess your one is transitioning to to the immature plumage, which includes those rufous wing feathers.
