Tasmanian Scrubwren
Sericornis humilis
(Viewing 3 of 3 photos)

The Tasmanian (or Brown) Scrubwren is often regarded as an island inhabiting subspecies of the widespread White-browed Scrubwren. It is restricted to Tasmania - even nearby Flinders Island is home to a different subspecies.

Tasmanian Scrubwrens differ from mainland birds by their less obvious facial markings. Their biology is probably much the same.
