These two beauties are even smaller

This is the first time I ever spotted and photographed a Scarlet Robin. And he was very shy!

  1. aw that Scarlet Robin is so cute! I never knew there are red robins in Australia. It's so cool that you captured him!

  2. Hi Rosey,
    Apparently there are 4 kinds of Red Robins and several kinds of Yellow Robins.

    According to my Field Guide's distribution maps there are two species that live in WA - the Scarlet and the Red-capped Robin.

    Until very recently I didn't know there were Robins in Australia either.
