The Cheery Party Guy

Here’s a cheery little chappie. They dart about, always on the move, eating insects. A great many of them are lost to feral cats and other birds preying on nestlings, so their numbers are going down in their native Australia.

The chipper song can be heard here.

Red-capped Robin (Petroica goodenovii)


Cheery and darting about for the day. Celebrating, having a good time, things are obviously not bad if this guy’s around to party.
