Hi Sonja,

Thank you for sharing your interesting observation.  According to HANZAB, wing 
flicking in males occurs as a territorial threat display.  I'm not sure if 
females do the same thing.

Kind regards,

Stephen Ambrose

I was watching a female Red-capped Robin feeding on the ground this afternoon, 
and several times, in two separate visits to the area where I was sitting she 
raised her wings and moved forward. I haven't observed this on other occasions, 
and wondered why she did it. Any thoughts?
