The Bismarck Whistler (Pachycephala citreogaster) is a species of bird in the Pachycephalidae family, which is endemic to the Bismarck and Louisiade Archipelagos in Papua New Guinea. It is variably considered a subspecies of a widespread Golden Whistler (P. pectoralis) or treated as a separate species, but strong published evidence in favour of either treatment is limited, and further study is warranted to resolve the complex taxonomic situation. The males of the Bismarck Whistler are white-throated unlike the yellow-throated males of the Oriole Whistler (P. orioloides) to the south-east.
