Hi Simon,

The bird was seen in Southern Wyperfeld, on the Lake Brambruk Track. The place was swarming with thornbills, weebills, and pardolotes, and it really tested out the ID skills.

Chestnut Rumped TB's were definently in the area, and my suspicions is that its possibly a younger bird.

I have a couple of photos of it, i might post them to oz-bird-pix in the nect few days.

I have some memory of seeing a Chestnut-rumped Thornbill also with some
richer rufous colouring on the forehead up here in Northern Victoria. Had me
going for a bit but I just put it down to plumage variability or an age
