PALE-YELLOW ROBIN Tregellasia capito 13 cm

  • The Pale-yellow Robin is endemic to rainforests in eastern Australia, where it is common but inconspicuous.

  • Mostly it is seen perched low in the forest, often sideways on a tree butt, before pouncing on small food items in the leaf litter.

  • The nest is an exquisite mossy structure, decorated with lichen and dried leaves.  It is often placed among the protective spines of a climbing palm.

  • Around Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge it is observed every day at the forest edge or on the lawn.

  • The 'Pale Yellow Robin' is much more commonly seen in the tropical rainforest.

  • It is, as the name suggests, coloured a pale yellow on the breast, with an olive back, brownish head, white throat and a distinctive pale patch just above the base of the bill.

  • It is often seen on the edge of the clearings and tracks.
