Eastern Yellow Robin
Eopsaltria australis

This is one of the most common of the robins of Australia and occurs in a range of wooded habitats from northern to southern Australia, around the east coast. They feed on insects and other small creatures. They are quite small at 15-17 cm in length and can be very tame around people. The Australian robins look remarkably like the robins of Europe, but this is merely convergent evolution producing birds that beome very similar through filling the same ecological niche.
