Eastern Yellow Robin near Sydney

A quick glimpse of an Eastern Yellow Robin from my walk today. The bird was in a dry creek, in Manly Dam National Park near Sydney. Eastern Yellow Robins are quite a common sight. I’ve seen them frequently in this particular spot, though it’s rare for one to sit still long enough for a decent photograph.

This short video shows the short shrift that the robin gives a worm, You can also hear the sounds of the other birds in the bush around the robin:

Eastern Yellow Robin

Usually the little birds (robins, wrens, finches) flit fast through the bush, coming to rest for only a few seconds before moving on. That makes photography challenging. This morning, a little Eastern Yellow Robin stayed in one spot long enough for me to take a few photos.
