A Scarlet Robin sits on the wire of a farm fence. This was one of a group of birds that included Flame Robins and Scarlet Robins. The Scarlet Robins are similar to the Flame Robins, but have black rather than grey backs and a larger white area on the forehead. They also have a red breast compared to an orange-red breast Flame Robin. These small birds migrate from Tasmania to South-East Victoria in the Winter.
