Hello Kev,

It would be interesting to me to know the eye colour of the White-browed Scrubwrens from the Adelaide hills. If anybody knows, please inform us.

Adult White-brows from the east coast have yellow eyes.

All the Spotted Scrubwrens I have seen and photographed have blue eyes – a very different look.

It has been suggested to me that this might be a latitude thing.



This is a Kangaroo Island Spotted – might well be closer to White-browed but DNA isn’t the last word.
