white-browed scrubwren

  1. Likes the scrub obviously

    Likes the scrub obviously

    There was also a White-browed Scrubwren foraging in the border; I think this is the female. One of the little guys that is quite easy to identify with that little white scribble on the wing patch.

    Back at John and Dora's in the evening light a White-browed Scrubwren was having a bath, which turned into a shower!! This is the nominate subspecies. Saturday Fun

    Positively evil!!!

    I wonder if it was my camera clicking, or if this White-browed Scrubwren was angry with his son for some reason LOL. As David commented yesterday... these guys always look cross!!

    I'd seen one of these before, but this was my first picture of a White-browed Scrubwren. This is a juvenile male and was lucky enough to realise that the parents were around too. Their pictures will follow.
  6. Call of the White-browed Scrubwren

    Call of the White-browed Scrubwren

    A bit agitated White-browed Scrubwren (Sericornis frontalis) calling in the Bunya Mountains National Park in 2014.

    Another old friend

    Back at John and Dora's just before it got dark, there on the water bath was a wee White-browed Scrubwren. This is a different subspecies to the ones I'd seen further north; so perhaps he's a 'new' friend LOL

    And father makes 3

    I really couldn't believe it when dad also appeared on the scene. He looks really severe with that head-on pose, doesn't he. Another speedy guy, this was the only picture I got of him.
  9. Then mum

    Then mum

    .... appeared. Goodness, I didn't really expect that LOL, but there she was. Not such a good picture this one, but I only got two images of her I'm afraid.

    I'd had very fleeting flighty views of the White-browed Scrubwren when we were at O'Reilly's a week or so before but didn't get a picture. Here's a juvenile male. Obviously I had to have that pointed out to me, as I couldn't really see much difference between him and dad.

    Having found the Lyrebird, we drove on to our next park. This time the target bird was Fairy-wrens. And we did see two species of them, though not in breeding plumage. Also four other lifers for me. First of the lifers was this Scrubwren.

    Another small bird at our waterhole;a long way off and thus severely cropped,like the Rufous Fantail,posted earlier today

    White-browed Scrubwren

    Looks quite different to the sub-species we have round Adelaide ('frontalis') - darker ear coverts and yellower and brighter underparts.

    Apologies for absence. What with video editing, laying pavers and having new carpets fitted life is a bit chaotic at the moment!

    This is not an easy bird to see let alone getting a photograph, Sue did very well.

    These little birds were so close but just wouldn't come into an open position. As an aside my brother ( Grandadtom on this Bird Forum ) arrives from the UK tomorrow for a few days before flying up to Darwin and Kakadu We hope to get up to the Granite Belt, bush fires permitting, to see some...
