Wamboin, NSW, Australia. A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to find a population of Chestnut-rumped Heathwrens at a neaby sub-division. At the time there was much interest from members of my local bird club, Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG), as these birds are quite rare in the area.

Captured on 27 Mar 2012
