  • Eastern Yellow Robin

  • Eopsaltria australis
  • The Eastern Yellow Robin is a medium sized robin. It has a grey back and head, yellow underparts, and an olive-yellow rump. The throat is off-white and, in flight, there is a pale off-white wing bar. The bill is black. Both sexes are similar in plumage colour and pattern, but the female is slightly smaller. Young Eastern Yellow Robins are rufous-brown. The plumage has some paler streaks, which are confined to the wings when the birds are a little older. Distinctive piping call.
