Australian Robins: Petroicidae - Australian Robins And People

related family world

Their bright colors and pleasant songs make them popular among bird watchers.


Australian robins are not related to the robins of the New World, the Western Hemisphere, which are actually thrushes. Though they resemble some Old World flycatchers due to similar adaptations to the environment, they are not related to this family either, nor do they behave like them. They do not normally find their food while they are flying. An ancient family, Australian robins are more closely related to Australian lyrebirds and honeyeaters.
