 Just got back from Margaret River and took this photo which I presume is a
white breasted robin

They were common up and down the track alongside margaret river east of
Bussell Highway. Generally solitary but I caught a glimpse of one doing a
funny extended wing display which looked like it had a broken wing going
back and forth for a few seconds and 3 other robins surrounded it and one
appeared to give it something or feed it, then all four promptly flew away
before I could get my zoom lens on (I'd been taking photos of plants). Does
this sound like any behaviour seen by others? 

PS: Red winged wrens were certainly plentiful and numerous in areas of cover
and I saw plenty though getting a good photo was another matter. A lot of
rain and mist  made for atmospheric walking but no conducive to walking
around with digital camera out toom much...
