Spotted Scrubwren [maculatus]

Sericornis maculatus [maculatus] (= Sericornis maculatus maculatus) Gould, J 1847

The spotted scrubwren is a bird species native to coastal southern Australia, from Adelaide westwards to Shark Bay in Western Australia. It was formerly considered conspecific with the white-browed scrubwren, and is known to hybridize with that species where their ranges overlap in the Adelaide area. Genetic analysis in a 2018 study of the family found that this taxon was more divergent from the white-browed scrubwren than the Tasmanian or Atherton scrubwrens and hence proposed its reclassification as a species. It was reclassified as a species in 2019. Source: Wikipedia
