Mangrove Robins make the morning


Set off for a morning looking for an uncommon grasslander, Zitting Cisticola, yesterday - and ended up finding even more uncommon coast dweller, Mangrove Robin (Peneonanthe pulverulenta). A noisy, active pair, to be precise. 


Another slice of luck close to the mangroves and unusually low in a eucalypt, bright little Striated Pardalote (Pardalotus striatus).


Also in the area, Brown Falcon (Falco berigora), though image above from an earlier drive through the grazing land leading to the mangroves.
