Eastern Yellow Robin – rinse cycle

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

The Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis) is a common visitor to our rural gardens and birdbath. I was busily trying to photograph an elusive Honeyeater (family: Meliphagidae) when I heard a splash and turned just in time to capture the rinse cycle of this little robin.
