On the last morning of our initial stay at Wirrealpa Station in the
North Flinders Ranges of inland South Australia, there it was!
The Variegated Fairy Wren momentarily posed in the open,
unfortunately not yet in full mating plumage.
One click and it was gone but I was happy anyway.
It was early morning as we were packing up, you know how it
goes . . . camera in one hand and carting stuff to the car with the
other . . . when this bright little Red-Cap Robin showed up.
Again, I just had a moment to catch this glimpse.
Sharp it is not . . but colourful none the less.
This handsome chap is decidedly bigger than the Fairy-Wren but
compared to an American Robin or an European Blackbird, he is
like Tiny Tim to Arnie Schwarzenegger.
With a bit of luck, we'll move to the mountains next week.
