Little Grassbird (Poodytes gramineus) is a small brown song bird that is found near water in reed-beds, dense vegetation, lignum swamps and salt marshes.
Whilst they may be inconspicuous, they are certainly heard, a high-pitched three-note whistle. The Little Grassbird are also know to engage with people — they have a call that is easily imitated, and usually whistle in response to such imitations.
They are found across eastern Australia, inland to central Australia, south-western Australia and Tasmania. They are also found in New Guinea.
The Little Grassbird feed on insects and other small arthropods.
