Pale-yellow Robin

The Pale-yellow Robin was first described by ornithologist John Gould in 1854. Like all Australian Robins, it is not closely related to either the European Robin or the American Robin, but belongs rather to the Corvida parvorder comprising many tropical and Australian passerines including pardalotes, Fairy-wrens and honeyeaters as well as crows.

The Pale-yellow Robin is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Pale-yellow Robin can be found in groups of one dominant male, one or two females and one to two subordinate males, which may be related to the adults. These subordinate males help bring food to the young and breeding females and help to defend the group's territory. More
