SCARLET ROBIN – RARE and in DECLINE
Canberra’s Icon is under threat due to loss of Eucalypt woodlands, Pied Currawongs, Noisy Miners and cats. The indigenous Noongar people of south western Australia considered the red colouration of the Robins breast to be blood. The Robin was said to have been punched in the beak by a Willy Wagtail causing it to bleed and trickle down the breast. (ABC News.
