The Return of the White-breasted Robin

It has been a cold, gusty, wintry day. But somewhere there during mid-morning I heard a call from the past. I could had sworn it was the ‘chip-chip’ of a White-breasted Robin which is not entirely impossible as we had one visit the garden quite regularly a number of years ago whilst it was covered in trees and bushes like a mini woodland.

I focussed on the call. It was definitely coming from the back of the block but I wasn’t able to pin-point exactly where, or see the white and grey form of a robin.

Following a bit more research to back my thoughts on the call I heard, I am confident it is the White-breasted Robin visiting from the bushland at the top of the mountain. It is just being a little elusive. But I won’t add it to the list until I’ve had it visually confirmed.

  1. That sounds like an oxymoron, since everyone knows that robins have red breasts. It also seems ironic that with all the wildly colored birds on your continent, that the robin is so subdued in color. He certainly has a cute face though. Are there red breasted robins as well?


      1. It is funny how some birds ‘look’ Australian. I can not explain it, but there is something about their appearance. I think that our fat robins, jays, turkeys and hawks would look odd there because they just ‘look’ like they should be here.
