The Vogelkop scrubwren (Sericornis rufescens) is a bird species. Placed in the family Pardalotidae in the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, this has met with opposition and indeed is now known to be wrong; they rather belong to the independent family Acanthizidae.

It is endemic to West Papua, Indonesia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
