Red-capped Robin

Red-capped Robin
These are the first bird photos in a long time ... all taken over Easter around Chiltern in Victoria. In late afternoon as drinks were being served back at camp, I found this confiding male beside one of the dams on our host's property.

As anyone who's ever seen one knows, male Red-capped Robins are a spectacular sight in the "monotonous hues" of the Australian bush.

("monotonous hues" were words used by Major Mitchell when describing the ability of another bird to enliven the bush -- the beautiful pink cockatoo that now carries his name).
