2022—Nesting

Seeing an Eastern Yellow Robin’s nest in Lamington National Park in Australia was an unexpected treat. The nests are are a basket like structure of sticks in the crotch of a tree and decorated with lichen. The male feeds the female while she sets on the nest. We could tell when the male was coming to the nest with an offering because the female would suddenly start to call out and quiver. The visit was over in a fraction of a second when the male delivered a grub or insect to the female very quickly.
