A Scarlet Robin Outside My Window
This little character popped up outside my kitchen window when I was making coffee this morning. I grabbed the nearest camera – my Pentax K-3 with 70-200, and photographed him though the window.
From Wikipedia: “The scarlet robin (Petroica boodang) is a common red-breasted Australasian robin in the passerine bird genus Petroica. The species is found on continental Australia and its offshore islands, including Tasmania. The species was originally split in 1999 by Schodde and Mason, and as the original collection by Gmelin was from Norfolk Island, this retained the name of multicolor, and is now known as the Norfolk robin.” (read more)
