Scarlet Robin

This colourful little robbin is no stranger to towns and cities and is perhaps the best known of the robins for that reason.  It is present in all states, except the Northern Territory.  The sharp delineation between contrasting bold red and black, with a dash of white on the wings, makes this a stand-out little bird in any garden or bush setting.  Most often seen as pairs or, at the end of the breeding season, small family groups.

I live in Dorrigo, NSW and I am lucky to be able to find these beauties,amongst many others too, fairly close to home. I can usually get a couple of metres  from these and I could watch them for hours. I currently have a Nikon P900 camera which has a fixed lens that can zoom to 2000mm so I dont have to keep changing lenses, which you dont have time for when out birding.. This photo was taken in Ebor NSW

No better way to spend a public holiday than to sit out in nature and wait for little birds … this is a Tasmanian male scarlet Robin taken at Mount Nelson Signal station.

This juvenile female scarlet robin was captured while i patiently sat on a picnic blanket at the Waterworks reserve Hobart just recently waiting for some bird activity. She rewarded my patience by sitting there so still for me … what a little sweetie!
