Mystery camera critter: Will it return this year?

Photo by Richard Schear, 2010

This pretty bird, hiding in last year's prairie weeds, looks like a yellow-breasted robin. Unfortunately, Dick only got one photo of it, which doesn't show its face. For the rest of the year, he kept an eye out for another Robin Yellow-breast, but didn't see one. We hope it returns this year, and we hope to identify it.

That's amazing! I've never heard of or seen a yellow breasted robin. I thought you were joking at first and googled it. Wow!

I'm with Kay, I've never heard of one before. I love seeing the robins return. Then I know spring is coming. - Margy

@ Kay and Margy - I'm not sure it's a yellow-breasted robin. Apparently they're mostly found in Australia, so it could hardly have migrated here by mistake, but there are also some in Mexico, so perhaps...
Well, we'll have to try to figure it out.

Interesting bird, but I'm not sure what it is. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

How interesting to know yellow breasted Robins exist at all!. Love the purple flowers too.
