I did a map query in eBird looking for records of Flame Robin in June -
   Basically there is a big gap around the snowfields.  Whether that means

   - skiers don't bird, or
   - birders don't like snow; or
   - Flame Robins don't like snow

is open to debate.

I hope the image in the blogpost is reasonable - I couldn't persuade the
birding-aus website to allow me to post the image there.
