Eastern Yellow Robin
Eopsaltria australis

Native Range: Australia

Notes: despite their common name, Australasian robins are not related to the familiar robins of North America and Europe (nor are the latter two closely related to one another); instead, Australasian robins (Petroicidae) are flycatcher-like birds, usually found singly or in pairs, with an upright stance and a proclivity to regularly flick their wings and tail; mostly of the species are insectivorous, and collectively they occupy a wide range of habitats; the Eastern Yellow Robin is native to eastern Australia and shows no sexual dimorphism.
