A mystery bird at Mannum

Mystery bird - is it a female Brown Songlark?

On my recent birding trip to Mannum (South Australia) I photographed this mystery bird.

I’m not at all certain what it is. The closest I can come to a reasonable ID is a female Brown Songlark. The colour is right, the markings feasible and size – about the size of a reedwarbler – is also about right. It was about 40 metres from the edge of the Murray River and didn’t give any calls.

Over to my readers for help.

    Hi Trevor,

    Except for that long tail, it looks like a common tree sparrow

    I am from Borneo island
