We've had the male Rose Robin 3 more times recently visit one of our
birdbaths (assuming it's the same individual).

Always in a large mixed feeding flock of similar species, this time:
Scartlet Robin (♀), Golden Whistler (♀), Grey Shrike-thrush (♀), all 5
Thornbill species, Weebills, Silvereyes, Grey Fantails, White-browed
Scrubwrens (♂♀), White-throated Treecreeper (♂), Superb Fairy-wrens.

A single Yellow-faced Honeyeater too, plus all the usual suspects.
