Hi David

The black throat means it cannot be a Flame Robin (despite the apparent yellowish red colour)
Therefore has to be a Scarlet Robin, given other marking features.

Today at 15:06 I sighted a robin that I am yet to identify. I am wondering whether it is a flame or scarlet robin. I have attached a photo or two.

Could someone please help me out?

Note: The pinnacle is dry woodland and it is near Hawker, backing on to Mt. Painter nature reserve
