Petroica (Erythrodryas) rodinogaster (Drapiez, 1819)

Pink Robin

Supported by

The male Pink Robin has a sooty black throat and upperparts. The wings have faint, tan-buff wing-bars. The breast and belly are deep lilac-pink, and there is a small white patch on the forehead. The tail is plain, making this species the only ���red��� robin with no white markings on the tail. It differs from the similar, and more common Rose Robin Petroica rosea , which is dark grey above, with a deeper rose-pink breast and white belly, and white outer tail feathers. ... source: Office of Environment and Heritage
