This Eastern Yellow Robin was one of the many birds enjoying the sunshine yesterday afternoon, following a very welcome rainy week. Many times on my walks I can hear bird calls coming from behind bushy leaves. Rarely do I see many of these tiny ‘tweety’ birds, so I was so happy to photograph this one.
According to my field guide, Eastern Yellow Robins nest in colonies in forks of trees, up to 7m off the ground. I reckon there were two or three other birds, at least, and this one came flying out of a fork in a tree… putting two and two together, possibly it was defending the nest by drawing my attention.
