I am confident that Steve is correct. Also, as for not Jacky Winter, this one is too grey, rather than brown and outer tail not white.

Good morning Julian – immediate reaction (from both Lach and myself) is a female Hooded Robin in a pose that isn’t showing its wing bars. Jizz/posture suggests not Jacky Winter. Reminds me of a bird that we saw north of Leeton a few years ago, briefly on top of a shrub before it flew – Lach took a picture and posted it to the Australian Bird Identification Facebook page, and the consensus there was Hooded Robin.

Sorry about the extra Degree of Difficulty … photo now included.


Does anyone have any thoughts on this bird that Sue L and I saw at Langtree Reserve south of Hillston last week?  At first we thought triller (about that size) until it thickened up and we saw the photo.
