Australia is a huge county, there is no doubt about it. The many parts of the country have been ravaged recently by wildfires, there are still huge areas rich in biodiversity.

This includes a very rare, very beautiful little bird called the pink Robin. Many people living in Australia are aware of the relatively common red-breasted Robin, so when they are lucky enough to see a Pink Robin, the little ball of joy brings a smile to their face.

The reason for such smiles is due to the sheer cuteness of this beautiful little bird, along with its extreme rarity. When people see photos of the bird, many people think it can’t possibly be real, that it has been Photoshopped or somehow touched up. This is not the case at all; the pink Robin is absolutely real.

Very real, but unfortunately seeing one is a very random event. The animal kingdom in Australia has taken a huge hit recently due to drought coupled with huge wildfires. Over 1 billion animals have lost their lives, luckily some parts of the country have escaped both the drought and the fires. In these areas, many animals still thrive.

Many birds tend to escape with their lives when it comes to fires, as they just fly away from danger.


How well the pink Robin is now doing is not known. Many probably found they had lost their homes when they returned after the fires had burned out.

The pink Robin likes to spend its day in the thick vegetation provided by Australia’s eucalyptus forests.

Females tend to have an olive-brown color, though they too have a dash of pink coloring on their bellies as well.
