On 15 January 1989 I saw my first ever (lifer) yellow-throated scrubwren at Robertson Rainforest. On the same day at the bottom of Macquarie Pass I found a nest of the same species.

I know this is out of area, but I cannot resist.
I seldom photograph birds.

I have not previously seen this species up here in Robertson.
(670 metres above sea level, on red basalt soil) It is classed as "cool temperate rainforest" - huge Coachwoods and Blackwoods and Blackwood Wattles. 

I have found nests of that species lower down in the wet Eucalypt forest in East Kangaloon. But not up here in Robertson - until today. 
This species is commonly found in the wet coastal forests. 
As far as I know, this is a first record for the Robertson Nature Reserve. 

I would welcome any advice of other records from other birdwatchers.
