Flame Robin, Tasmania

A superb bright red-breasted Flame Robin (Petroica phoenicea) in Margate, Tasmania. When we lived in this area, we would see these little birds on a very regular basis. At one time, my father was visiting and digging a vegetable garden bed, and a local robin was there each day waiting to be fed worms!
