Eastern Yellow Robin

How often I comment on others birding blogs, that I admire so much their yellow bird photographs. Being able to see for myself, the yellow robins while at Lamington National Park, Qld,  was a total joy.




Part of larger signage along one of the walking tracks.  I watched early one morning, while the brush turkeys were scratching away in the mulches, a robin would watch while clinging on from the lower part of a tree trunk. Then fly down when the scrub-turkey disturbed something worthwhile.

Great photos of beautiful birds. I see Eastern Yellow Robins around here - but have never yet got a photo that I was really happy with. Here's hoping! Yours are great!

Richard Waring said...

They are beautiful shots Carole, and its nice to see the "background" shot of the sign also. You did really well with some of those shots and the dark undergrowth to be able to capture the Robin. I almost feel as though I was there with you as you explain - bird-watching through another bird-watchers eyes, thanks. Richard

Great series of shots, this bird is so pretty and I love the expression on it's face in the last shot, beautiful.

Faye said...

How striking this acid yellow breast on this little sweetie--so round and plump. And smart to let another bird do the work of foraging.

Stewart M said...

Splendid little birds - this is another one I got some good images of in Lambington.

It was hard to tell how many fish the birds were catching - but it must have been a few.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

What a wonderful bird ! Your first and last photo are gorgeous !

Pete Shanley said...

Thanks Carole! You got some of the classic robin poses there!

Phil said...

Super shots Carole. you learn something every dat - me, I never knew there was a yellow robin. Thought they were all red.

Arija said...

Robins are very resourceful. The Queensland version seems a much brighter yellow than in the Victorian alps. Lovely captures in that indeterminate light.

Hi Carole,

Thanks for leaving a comment for me and for sharing your lovely pics. These are lovely photos of the yellow robin. These little sweeties are all around our estuary and are such friendly little things.

Y'know, we are just about to launch an audio trail for the Balcombe Estuary boardwalk down here, and the mascot on all the signage is the eastern yellow robin!! I'll send you some of the info about it when we have it on-line, just for interest. There are posts all along the route with QR codes on them. The QR codes are picked up with a smart phone and then one can listen to a lovely commentary about where one is standing and what can be seen. Great project.

Miles of smiles,
Ros.

Cute little guy. I've not seen this species before. You are becoming the masterful bird photographer. Did you change the title of your blog while I was away?

Helma said...

Hi Carole,

Hi Carole, this is a new one for me, such a lovely little bird and great photos. I also enjoyed the illustrative work too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've enjoyed it here very much :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

two words: "Simply stunning!!"

Carole M. said...

a lovely response to this Eastern Yellow Robin post; it's so good to read your feedback and know you're out there stopping by. RosC: Your Balcombe Estuary boardwalk sounds like it will become quite the birders paradise; great for you locals too. Sinbad and I ... John, tks for your compliments and yes I did change my blog name, April 27 post titled white-faced heron explains. Helma, I have written email to you. Thanks again everyone, I loved your comments here.
