Very active small bird with a tail which it fans.   Seen bathing in a small puddle on the track with an Eastern Yellow Robin for a few moments. They seem to be sedentary. They are often found near water and in cooler areas.

Their facial markings make them easy to identify.

They like to have a bath, vigorously!

Small, but fledged young seen 10.1.2017.
