The red-capped robin gets its name from the distinctive cap on its head – bright red on the male and a duller red on the female.
These small birds feed on insects and other invertebrates, foraging on the ground or in low bushes. They will often perch on a stump or fallen branch, darting down to snatch insects from the ground. You may see them mixing with other small birds (such as willy wagtails) when they feed.
The red-capped robin likes areas with tall trees and shrubs. Look for it in wooded areas along the Uluru base walk or at Kata Tjuta.
