The striated fieldwren (Calamanthus fuliginosus) is a species of bird in the family Acanthizidae, endemic to Australia.
The striated fieldwren is a small bird, 140mm in size. It is light brown and olive-colored, with a white stomach, and black streaks all over. Its tail is cocked and whitish with black and brown streaks.
The striated fieldwren’s front is buff with dark gray and brown streaks; their wings are also brown and gray but with darker and bolder streaks. The bird’s flight feathers, however, do not have streaks. Instead, they have fine light gray edges. A whitish line over the eye can also be found on the striated fieldwren.
Striated fieldwrens can be difficult to spot as they forage quietly in thick vegetation or on the ground. If approached, the bird’s tail will elevate and sometimes move side to side, while continuing its song until it feels trapped, then it will fly away and relocate.
