Pink Robin

Petroica rodinogaster


Pink Robin (Male) The Pink Robin is a small tubby bird, and is easily over-looked, being quieter than other robins. Males are brownish-black above, with a black throat and head. There is a small white spot above the bill, which is a buff spot on the female. Males have a diagnostic pink wash on the breast which extends right down under the belly. Females are a warm olive-brown above, with cinnamon buff underparts with a pinkish tint. Females and young birds have diagnostic buff wing patches. This species has a plain dark tail, lacking the white edges of other Petroicarobins.


In the breeding season (September to March) Pink Robins are seen singly or in pairs in deep gullies in dense shrub layers of damp and wet forests or rainforests. In winter, they are found in more open and drier habitats. This little male was spotted in the Liffy Falls carpark , a rainforest area.


Flying from car to car , looking in the side mirrors to be dominate thinking he can see other males on his turf , covered the mirrors up :)

Great color combination. Lacking a little camouflage. Wonder if it has trouble surviving.
