Thank you to Brendan Lepschi and Paul Taylor for two suggestions on the right nomenclature for 'rose hip' bushes, as per the title of this entry. The reason I mention these plants at all is that I have a sneaking suspicion (very scientific) that where dead branches and twigs are not available, Hooded Robins use the 'rose hip' bushes for hunting perches. Alternatively, in the absence of other small bushes, they might use the thorny 'rose hip' bushes for cover. I would be interested if anyone has any information or observations that would support or cut the ground from under these possibilities.
