I have had Speckled Warblers a few times on our property at Carwoola. On some occasions they have been bouncing around on our lawn(!!) with all sorts of exotic plants in the vicinity. On other occasions they have been in the upper reaches of the property feeding in and around cumps of Acacia dealbata and/or Bursaria.
When we used to live in Bruce they were often seen near some Pyracanthus plants and acted as you described wrt the eucalypts.
Cutting a thin semanic slice, perhaps rather than "habitat" what is needed is an indication of the species/genus of plants with which they are associated and how they are interacting?
Perhaps there is also a need to emphasise planting suitable new shrubs before the old ones are removed from the site? I have noticed that piles of dead prickly things (not sure if that term is a genus or a species) at Newline are very popular with Southern Whiteface and Superb Fairy-wrens. I also recall Jack Holland commenting that leaving, rather than burning, heaps of briars and brambles after they have been cut provides refuges for small birds.

It might add a little value to Speckled Warbler reportings if note could be
