Help me identify this little beauty

If you recognize the bird on the photos above, please post a comment! I suspect that it might be some kind of a Red-eyed Thornbill, but I'm not sure at all... It was photographed near Hobart, Tasmania.
[edit] I'm now more than certain that this is a Brown Thornbill. Thanks, BlackCrow!

  1. Hi Nickolay, could he be a little wattle bird or a brown thornbill?
    I'll have to find my bird book!

  2. Hi BlackCrow!
    Thornbill pictures in my bird book seem to be closest to those photos. It's a pity that we can't see his back...

    Brown Thornbill - that should be it!
    I found this and it is definitely the same bird.
    Thanks!
