yes I realise this is a bit late, but I thought the most surprising thing about your previous report was that your Pink Robin was actually pink!

I regularly see Pink Robins around Geelong in winter - there are 2 in the Botanic Gardens at present and there has been at least one there in winter every year for years - and I have never seen a pink Pink Robin in any of these winter locations.

G'day birders,

In terms of Rose and especially Pink Robins, nearly all previous records in the Bendigo area have been of brown birds, so todays observations (although the Rose
was pinkish!) were still 'more normal' than the situation in the nearby
Mandurang State Forest (where there are still Pink and Rose Robins in full adult
male plumage).
