This afternoon, around 1pm, saw four species of robin on Turkey Hill at Tidbinbilla:  flame, scarlet, hooded and Eastern yellow. The first three species were around for about half an hour, with excellent views of both males and females.  We saw only the male yellow robin, as it flitted around scrub bordering the open area where the other birds were.
Also seen in the same area:  grey shrike-thrush, yellow-rumped thornbills, fairy wrens and southern whitefaces.
A great half hour of bird-watching!
