Rainforest Robins

The robins of Australia are not related to the English robins of which they were named after, but belong to their own family the Petroicidae. They were so named because like the English robins, the robins of the south-eastern Australian woodlands stood upright on a perch, flew out to feed on insects, and often had bright pink and red breasts. However, the 'Australian Robins' found in the rainforests tend to be much more subdued in colour.
