General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Has a similar rump to chestnut-rumped thornbill, so easy to miss-identify.
Striations of the throat go much further past the breast, almost to the legs.
If you can see the colour of the eye, it often makes identification easier.
Thick buff colour eye-ring, with a red eye (compared to the off-white eye of the chestnut-rumped thornbill).
