Woodlands Historic Park, close to Melbourne Airport, is a fantastic spot.
The Back Paddock is largely a grey box woodland, and 5 Robins can be seen
here during winter: Scarlet (22), Red-capped (44), Rose (4), Flame (32),
Eastern Yellow (13). I've included the Eremaea reporting rate to give an
idea of which robins you are more likely to see. I've not seen more than 4
on one day but an amazing SEVEN is possible: Jacky-Winter (1%) and Pink
(just under 1%). I recall someone seeing six on a single outing - not sure
if anyone has seen all 7.
Eremaea has no record of Hooded Robin at this site, but they've been
recorded not that far away. 8 robins does soudn a litlte excessive!
You've laid down the challenge, Frank. I'll be out to get 5 Robins at
Woodlands next winter!
