White-browed Scrubwren

Sericornis frontalis laevigaster.

A relatively decent shot of a scrubwren. Definitely the first one I've seen out in the open anyway.

    Shame the Eastern Whipbirds in that same area weren't so accommodating ;-)

    Thanks Thea, they are indeed - like little bandits with their mask though.
    Thanks Alexandra :)
    There were definitely a lot about, can't say I got all of them though.
    Indeed - usually hiding under the brush.
