Flame Robins have landed

Perhaps a little earlier than in recent years, a few Flame Robins have arrived in the Mia Mia.

I was surprised to see three different individuals come in to drink at a small dam along Mia Mia Track. I’d never photographed an orange-washed youngster before, so this was a highlight. The birds love this spot in the Muckleford bush, areas of open country adjacent to the more heavily wooded ridge-line provides ideal foraging habitat. I’ll look forward to seeing some adult males in coming weeks.

  1. Hi Geoff, can you tell me wherevMia Mia track is. I would like to look for birds there and do some walking. I’m a friend of Elvyne’s and met you at your son’s workshop during the open studios.

  2. Brilliant pics Geoff, I’ve never seen an orange-washed juvie before either. Just love the beautiful reflections you have captured here!
