Hear all about it!The Red-capped Robin is most commonly found in dry areas with little water like Rottnest Island. They can be found in the Island’s Tea Tree woodland and they also live in the Wattle thickets. You might be lucky enough to spot them around Bickley swamp or Henrietta Rocks.
The Red-capped Robin is the smallest of Australia’s five red-breasted robins. It has been present on Rottnest since the Island was cut off from mainland about 7,000 years ago and It is believed to be genetically slightly different from the mainland population.
