I am now starting to doubt myself, so I am asking for advice on likelihood for
On my morning walk, I believe a saw two scarlet robins at Mt Stromlo. I was
alerted to them because their twittering was completely different from the
usual small bird sounds around (I walk this area a lot)
I only had my phone, so the photos are utter rubbish, but I was 100% certain
until I read on the COG website they are in fact uncommon in the ACT and now my
mind is telling me it might have been another one instead. Although the white
patch on the head was bigger than what I expect from say a flame robin.
So, until I can get my camera and get a positive ID, what’s the likelihood of a
pair of scarlet robins at this time of year? And what would make a sighting“
Thank you in advance, I shall update you on a confirmed ID if I can.
