 Sorry Chris and others. That should be Red Capped Robins. Some of the
locals calls them Red Hooded and it has rubbed off. I will fill out the
required forms. Are they available online? I have not heard and no
appearances have been made today by either the Red or Yellow  Wattlebirds
today. Normally I hear the Reds in the tree further over.

Hi Terry
Would you be willing to submit a NSW unusual record form for this sighting
as it has moved the range over 100 km..
What do you mean by  Red Hooded Robin, is this a local name or you have not
checked a field guide for the correct name.
Cheers  Chris for NSW Ornithological Records Appraisal Committee.

But this is their third spring they have been around here. 
Five have been sighted at once. They are definitely Yellow Wattle birds with
Their Yellow dangling ear. They mainly hang around about in a four block
Radius and for a short period while the Flowering Quinces are their usual
Mass of red flowers. There are the usual many Red Wattle Birds as well but
They are around all year.
