The White-browed Scrubwren is a drab bird which inhabits the dense undergrowth in many different habitats. Although scrubwrens are wary and alert, they are often inquisitive and easily called up from the dense vegetation, with one or more birds appearing briefly in the open to scold loudly at the intruder. They are also remarkably sedentary, often remaining in the same patch of vegetation. Because of these traits, they have been the subject of many studies on almost every aspect of their ecology, and over 30,000 scrubwrens have been banded.
