About the Rose Robin

Also known as: Rose Robin-Flycatcher
The Rose Robin is a small songbird native to southeastern Australia. Adult males have dark grey upperparts, white underparts, and a rose pink breast for which the species is named. Females have the same shape but they lack the same color, instead having a mouse grey plumage.

Rose Robins feed on insects like caterpillars, wasps, beetles, and spiders. They are found in rainforest habitat, especially during breeding season where they nest in trees up to 65 feet or 20 meters off the ground.
