Eastern Yellow Robin
Eopsaltria australias 15 - 16cm
One of the clearest calls of the dawn chorus is the monotone, piping whistle of this robin. This is one of its many calls. They feed close to the ground, often clinging sideways and motionless on the trunks of saplings, watching patiently for the movement of insects or worms. From late winter through to summer they build clutch nests and raise several clutches of two chicks. The similar Pale-yellow robin is also common in this rainforest.
