Scarlet Robin

Petroica multicolour
Scarlet Robin at Taylor's, June 2007

The Scarlet Robin is without doubt the tamest of all the birds at Taylor's and therefore the easiest to photograph. Whenever one of us is doing any sort of digging or weeding there is a Robin standing by to profit from any edible grubs or worms which we may turn up.

They seem to keep their bright colours all the year round.
