They are not related to European and american robins

Beautiful! Are they as common as american Robin in the US?


Non of these are common birds. The jacky winter is very widespread in terms of range but you would have a hard time finding one. The scarlets and flames cover a small more southern range but not common birds you see everywhere even in that range.
