‘Scrubbies’ on the Loddon

They might just look like another of those ‘LBJs’ (Little Brown Jobs) as they dart through the undergrowth. However, White-browed Scrub-wrens deserve closer observation – they are handsome and striking birds.

The habitat along the Loddon River is perfect for them – they prefer patches of dense shrubs to forage and nest in. There distinctive scolding calls can be heard among a chorus of other river denizens – Clamorous Reed-warblers and Little Grassbirds are active and vocal in the reed-beds at the moment.
