Hooded Robin (Melanodryas cucullata)

The Hooded Robin is an Australasian robin found over much of the interior of Australia. It has however declined in more settled areas. In the Canberra region where these birds were filmed they are now thinly distributed in lightly wooded country and is not easy to find. Filmed on a bright winters’ day, typical of these birds they were pouncing on insects and worms from a selection of vantage points.
