Wild Bird Wednesday 353 - Eastern Yellow Robin

When we were away at Lorne we were visited regularly by at least three Eastern Yellow Robins (Eopsaltria australis).

They (or at least one) seemed to like using the fire sprinkler near the front door as a hunting (and maybe display) post.  There was often a bird on this sprinkler, but it would take a long time for one to sit there if there were any people outside of the house.  Well, I was ready to wait a long time!

Although called a robin, this bird is not closely related to either the European or American robins.

What a pretty little robin but I wonder why it is called that if not related to other robins!!! Have a good week. Cheers Diane

One very cute bird, but unlike the robins we have which are much larger.

I always associate a robin with a red breast. The yellow is so pretty.

That is a beautiful bird ... and not one I’ve ever heard of before! Would love to see this guy in real life .... I was already quite jealous of the English robin, which is quite a bit daintier than our American “Robin Redbreast” ... and now this one doubles the envy, ... thank you for hosting!
