I was reviewing photographs of the animals we found on our trip to Australia during the past September and I cannot find what is the bird in the picture. It was found inside Alice Springs Desert Park, so it has to be a native bird, same as all the others.

enter image description here

Could anyone please help me?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm tempted to say it could be a golden-headed cisticola (Cisticola exilis), but it's a difficult angle to clearly see the head. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @cezar it totally looks like this one, the habitat matches and I've searched in several photos on flicker and google and it seems like the bird :) $\endgroup$

It is a Cisticola exilis as stated by @cezar If someone has any objection please reopen this.
