Little Tasmanian Bird

Taken on the Mt. Mysery walk, Ranelagh Tasmania (@ 40klm South of Hobart) - wet eucalypt forest. All photos are of the same bird showing different angles, looking up on the tree.

My thoughts;

Tasmanian Scrubwren - but I thought a bit high off the ground?

Brown Thornbill - not much striation on the chest?

Tasmanian Thornbill - no fluffy underpants or light belly/bum.

Scrubtit (this is my hope!) - but seems a bit olive/green?

Looks good for a Scrubtit IMO.

Juveniles have more of a Yellow/green wash and smaller white wing markings than adults.

Nice one!

Thanks AJ. This was also confirmed on Tasmanian Bird Sightings and Photography Facebook page.

Always appreciate another opinion.
