Wed 1highlightTawny Grassbird
First alerted to its presence when bird flushed giving classic Tawny Grassbird metallic song. Bird perched in tall grass and on fence providing excellent prolonged views (no camera) of diagnostic features - the rufous crown and rufous wash to plumage; unlike olive brown wash to congener; Little Grassbird. Streaked dorsal plumage and clean buffy underparts. Pale supercilium and tail appeared longer cf tail of congener. Only heard to sing once more, but 'jik' call notes heard and recorded, which the ABG calls alarm calls. [Moderator: First ACT record since a single bird at West Belconnen Ponds 14 January 2022]
