Bobbing sideways and flitting from branch to branch, the bright yellow chest had me mesmerised. Clasping sideways on the trunk of a small tree his beautiful form was such a delight.
The Eastern Yellow Robin is common in forests and woodlands on the east coast of Australia. He silently went about his business looking for insects and spiders. Most of his prey caught on the ground after being pounced on from a low perch.
At around 15cm from tip to tail. He is a little cutie.
Although he was silent on this occasion, his penetrating piping call is one that can be heard often well before dawn.
