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.

March 29, we had a 'brown' Flame Robin at Evan's Lookout (Blue Mountains, NSW) [and a pair of Rose Robins at Mount Wilson, NSW] March 31, my friend Exley Steward had a 'red' Flame Robin and a Rose Robin at Royal NP, NSW.

Hi Birdoes,

I would like to hear details of your first sightings of Flame Robins
this autumn.

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.
