Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A flat-crowned, plain brownish bird with a long tail found in arid spinifex/tussock grassland in inland Australia. Fairly secretive and skulking but inquisitive. Compare Australian Reed-Warbler and Tawny Grassbird, both species of much wetter grasslands, not spinifex habitats. Compare also Rufous Songlark, which has a different song, more patterned back, and rusty rump. Song is a variety of chirped phrases, similar to reed warblers.
