Flames in the forest

Gorgeous, pretty flames. At this time of year we have a number of Flame Robins on the property, but mainly in the open country. It’s usual to see them on fences and in open spaces, so I was a little surprised that this pair was happily hanging out inside the forest. Of course, as is evident from the pics, this part of the forest has a very open understorey and ground-layer and there are plenty of perches from which to survey for the next snack.

The snaps don’t really do the bird justice, but the flame-red of the males is striking and immediately recognisabe.
