|Inland Thornbill Acanthiza apicalis
|Wilpena Pound, SA, Australia
The Inland Thornbill is distributed inland of the Great Dividing Range and across to Western Australia but is missing from the tropical north and Tasmania. It is found in dry scrub and woodland.
|It is the inland equivalent of Brown Thornbill Acanthiza pusilla and is greyer above with whitish rather than buff scallops on the forehead. Although Wilpena Pound is in the zone of intergradation of 3 sub-species I think this is probably the nominate race given the cinnamon-russet tone of the flanks, undertail coverts and belly.|
