The Pink Robin is a small tubby bird, and is easily overlooked, 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.
Pink Robins are endemic to (only found in) south-eastern Australia.
It’s just so round!
Unfortunately, until the fires are all out and the birds that escaped return, it’s hard to estimate losses.
Pink robins are classified by the males’ black heads, white patch above their beaks, and of course, that incredible belly.
