The Chestnut-rumped Hylacola is an uncommon and cryptic box-ironbark species. Their relative scarcity and secretive habits mean that any sightings are noteworthy. In the Muckleford bush they are patchily distributed, occurring mainly in small areas of Heathy Dry Forest, especially on ridges and outcrops. I encountered one yesterday in typical habitat, just west of Mia Mia Track. It divided its time between the undergrowth and low perches as I managed to snag some shots.
