Distribution and habitat preferences

It is an Australasian robin of coastal and sub-coastal eastern Australia. The extent of its range is from the extreme southeast corner of South Australia through most of Victoria and the western half of New South Wales and north as far as Cooktown. Tropical Northern Queensland birds are mainly restricted to the warm heights of the Great Dividing Range.

It occupies a wide range of nubs: heaths, mallee, acacia scrub, woodlands and sclerophyll forests, but is most often found in damper places or near water. (Wikipedia)


It tends to inhabit fairly dark, shaded locations and is a perch and pounce hunter, typically from a tree trunk, wire, or low branch. Their diet is a wide range of small creatures, mostly insects. (Wikipedia)
