Yellow-rumped Thornbill

Yellow-rumped Thornbill - Acanthiza chrysorrhoa 


Rawnsley Park, S.A., 12.9.2016, several birds.


Spends time feeding on the ground, usually in small groups.  It has a tinkling, easily recognised song, and the yellow rump is distinctive, as is the head pattern.  Not as common round Melbourne as it used to be.  Builds a dome-shaped nest.
