Distribution of the white-throated grasswren

The white-throated grasswren (Amytornis woodwardi) is a species of bird in the Maluridae family. It is endemic to Australia.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland and rocky areas. It is threatened by habitat loss. It is threatened by changes in the local fire regime that have caused the grass T. microstachya to be replaced by sorghum, leading to inadequate habitat quality and lack of reproductive success.[2]
