Out of curiosity, would someone please describe the habitat in which these Heath Wrens are found?
I assume it is "heath" of some form, but my (very rough) memory of the Pierces Creek area does not fit with this comment: "As there are thousands of hectares of that type of country".
My interest is sparked by having just come back from a trip into sandstone heath country in the Budawangs, and am now wondering if I might have missed an opportunity to look for these Heath Wrens. Predominant shrub flora was low Epacrids, Kunzeas, and patches of Banksia, occasional Mallee-form Eucalypts, interspersed with sedge-like vegetation.
