My rich vein of form in the Mia Mia continues unabated.
This immature Red-capped Robin was a nice observation – an indication of successful local breeding from a species that is thinly spread throughout the Muckleford bush.
Australian Owlet-nightjars are supposed to be nocturnal – this one may have been disturbed as I passed nearby. They often sit at hollow openings throughout the day and I’ve frequently disturbed individuals of this species on my wanderings. This one was very cooperative, albeit a bit higher up than I would have preferred. Owlet nightjars are extremely common, but most of them see us I’m sure from their cryptic vantage points without being observed.
