Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis)

Another week, another outing to the Toolangi State Forest. Not as much bird life around as usual, but this pretty little White-throated Gerygone Eastern Yellow Robin* joined us on our winter picnic.

  2. Lovely pic - but it is an Eastern Yellow Robin - WT Gerygone would be very rare at Toolangi.

  4. We have one of these little beauties visiting our garden too in June, but I didn't manage to get a shot. We didn't see the red robin this year.

  5. We have seen a couple of red robins but not been able to get a good shot yet. We also have a Gilberts Whistler for the very first time but he will not sit still long enough for me to capture a shot.
