Hi All

On 6 April I reported the arrival of Flame Robins at our property.  I am now 
belatedly advising that I am not certain of my ID on that occasion. I think 
that it is likely that what I was seeing were juvenile/immature Scarlet Robins. 
 The first definite Flame Robin sighting   (a male!) was not made until 5th May 
and then daily from 10th.

Still on Robins, I think that I may have seen Pink Robins last week (and 
perhaps once in 2003).  This week I had good views of two brown robins that 
appeared not to have any light mark above the beak and which had tan wing bars. 
 Unfortunately I did not notice whether the tail had any white but I now know 
that I should have checked.  I would appreciate any hints for identification of 
either or both Pink and Rose Robins.
