Range Description

This taxon is the only bird species endemic to New South Wales, Australia. It is abundant through a large area of the Hawkesbury Sandstone both north and south of Sydney. A recent decline of 65% in reporting rate for this species in its core bioregion, the Sydney basin, based on atlas survey work, is not associated with a contraction in range and is believed to be an artefact of observer behaviour, as during the second atlas survey birders visited fewer forest fragments where the species occurs.
