Red-caps reappear

The highlight of a late afternoon visit to the Mia Mia earlier this week was the appearance of a handsome male Red-capped Robin. This somewhat enigmatic local robin can be observed throughout the year, however they tend to be more often recorded in the drier months when they disperse after breeding. The female was seen fleetingly, making some gentle contact calls while the male was displaying boldly.
