White-faced Robin

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

both it and the related White-faced Robin remain unclear and are hence placed in their own small genus Tregellasia, originally erected by Gregory Mathews in 1912. 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. Alternate common names given to the species have been Large-headed Robin and Pale Robin. More
