Artist's Description

Acrylic painting on canvas board depicting an EASTERN YELLOW ROBIN.

These medium-sized birds 15 – 17 cms are normally confined to the Eastern and South Eastern parts of the Australian mainland, favouring the coastal and adjacent areas, moving during the winter months ( June – August ) from highland to lowlands.

These birds are inquisitive and confident with humans, and can be seen perched on the side of a tree trunk or low perch, in parks and gardens and picnic areas.

They feed on insects and spiders which they catch on the ground or pounce on from a low perch.. They also take handouts in picnic areas, sometimes feeding alone, or in pairs, or small family groups.

Breeding time takes place from July to June each year, during which time breeding pairs may lay up to 3 clutches of 2 – 3 eggs.

The female builds the nest which are usually in the fork of an upright tree, 5 to 20 metres from the ground. Their nests are cup-shaped and woven, made from grass, bark and other vegetation, bound with spider web and have a soft lining.

Only the female incubates the eggs, but both parents and sometimes other helpers care for the young which leave the nest about 12 days after hatching.
