Hi Everyone,

Jill and I saw two robins at Mulligan's Flat today and at one stage saw an adult male scarlet robin interact with them. We didn't get very close at that stage and assumed that they were also scarlet robins.

Their behaviour was much more like that of flame robins .... spending quite a lot of time on the ground, standing very tall , wings drooped on occasions (don't recall seeing scarlet robins do that) ...Also the wing pattern and lack of colour on the breast is more consistent with flame robins.

I have only ever seen 1 flame robin at Mulligan's, so would just like confirmation (or otherwise) that these are female flame robins.
