I do consider Speckled Warblers quite rare around Brisbane and they are seldom 
recorded in the Brisbane City area.  I am out and about birding quite a bit and 
see them around Samford/Dayboro and in the Lockyer Valley.  They are also 
around Jimboomba and Beaudesert. They are quite common further west (west of 
Great Divide) in suitable woodland habitat.  They have struggled with the 
prolonged drought and were quite difficult to find for much of last year.  
Birdata shows a few records reported around southern bayside suburbs and south 
western suburbs not far from Beaudesert Road generally.  They can be quite 
common locally in areas where suitable woodland habitat still exists.  Like 
quite a few species of woodland dependant birds, they suffer from urban 
development and land clearing generally.  Overgrazing does not help either.
