Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Long-legged songbird found in semi-arid parts of southern Australia. Grayish above, paler gray below, with faint wingbars and long tail, often flicked upward. Very subtle dark mark through the eye and cheek. Usually seen running around on the ground in open woodland, although male also sings from higher perches. Main call is a repeated three-note rising whistle, "chip-dee-deee," but also makes rough, buzzy alarm calls.
