Ortygocichla rubiginosa (Sclater, 1881)

The Rusty Thicketbird (Megalurulus rubiginosus) is a bird species. Previously placed in the "Old World Warbler" family Sylviidae, it does not seem to be a close relative of the typical warblers; probably it belongs in the newly-recognized grass-warbler family Megaluridae. It is found only in Papua New Guinea.
