Thu 22 Mar Mangrove Robin Shoalwater Bay
I have just found mangrove robins (1x immature and 1x adult at the bottom of Shoalwater Bay in central Qld). The young bird was calling and in close proximity with the adult bird the whole time. It (immature) had wings dropped and quivering when settled on low branches, but I did not actually see it being fed – although our views of the 2 birds were never long before they moved and were resighted.
