Sericornis frontalis maculatus
(Viewing 4 of 6 photos)

Click to listen to sound samples Spotted Scrubwrens are the most distinctively different form of the widespread White-browed Scrubwren. They occur as four different subspecies from SE South Australia across to Western Australia and up as far as Shark Bay. Throughout this range, dense coastal heathy country is their optimum habitat. Their habits and life histories would be much the same as those of the White-browed Scrubwren.

Spotted Scrubwrens have grey or blue eyes which give them a different look to White-browed Scrubwrens in which the eyes are yellow.
