Here in the Blue Mountains (NSW) it seems to be an altitudinal
movement of Flame Robins. They're present in the higher parts of the
mountains during spring-summer-autumn but move down into the valleys
such as the Megalong and Capertee for winter. During the 1980s and
90s there was a pair in my local park (in Katoomba) in all months of
the year but that was unusual, and sadly I no longer see these
beautiful birds in that particular park.
Rose Robins are around all year but move into more open habitats
during autumn and winter.

Subject: [Birding-Aus] RFI: Flame Robin movement in Victoria
I would like to hear details of your first sightings of Flame Robins
I have been monitoring their arrival and movement through Sedgwick,(near
Bendigo) for several years and wondered if a pattern of their movement
across the state could be noticed by the first observations of this
species. I would like to know the ratio of red to brown birds and if
any have bands.
Regards, Glenise Moors.
