Red Caps and Rose robins in the same location??? wow..

That seems unusual coming from Victoria, since Red caps are usually confined to the drier parts of the state, and Rose robins in the wetter parts.

Is there anywhere else in australia that this happens, or this just an unusual circumstance/location?


Hi Peter,

I have seen Red caps and Rose robins at Deep Creek CP in South Aust. ( 1 hrs drive south of Adelaide near Delamere. )
 There are also Scarlet and Flame robins there as well.
I have also seen the Red capped robins in the dry creek beds in the upper Flinders Ranges around Arkaroola.  I think they are normally associated with the semi-arid parts of  S.A. as well.
