Eastern Yellow Robins … a short note

I’ve been reading about Eastern Yellow Robins this week.

Last August I photographed a pair engaged in courtship feeding at the Rise and Shine – this observation has been included in a short paper, Skinks and burrowing crayfish as prey items of the Eastern Yellow Robin Eopsaltria australis in south-eastern Australia (Valerie La May, Martin O’Brien, Con Boekel, Kathy Costello, Geoff Park, Sonja Ross) in Volume 33 (pp. 57-60) of Australian Field Ornithology. I’m grateful to the principal authors for inviting my participation … the observation happened in the blink of an eye!

If you’d like to read the paper you can access the on-line version of the journal via Birdlife Australia … all members ($79 for an annual membership) have free access to AFO and lots of other resources.

In the meantime our local robins are going about their business … I spent a nice hour with a pair on Pound Lane earlier in the week.
