A query about the subspecific identity of Variegated fairywrens at the Mitchell Plateau, Kimberley, WA. Female plumaged birds we saw there on our recent trip had white lores, and were very blue above and on the tail, very similar to the taxon dulcis which is meant to be the Arnhemland race. Birds here are supposed to be the chestnut-lored taxon rogersi. They reminded me very much of female Lovely Fairywren in fact, quite striking birds.
Has anyone else noted the race here?
Good birding
