WHEN SCARLET ROBINS SEE RED
This morning, near Morton, I watched a male Scarlet Robin fly into a paddock where there was another male Scarlet Robin. The second bird wasn't at all happy and chased the intruder out of his territory. The original bird darted back to the fence where he was perched initially and (seemingly indignant and embarrassed) turned his back to the agro defender. I had a chuckle. SR behaviour I've not seen before. LJ,10 August 2014.
