Unmistakable male with Red breast
No interactions present.
Hi Wildlife Ranger.
It is definitely a Robin but both male and female have the distinctive red breast. I am sure it is just a typo!
Not Muscicapidae, which is Flycatchers. It is in the Turdidae..Thrushes.

I think I might be correct. Check out the current classification I understand they are currently in the Family stated and are classified as Old World Flycatchers - Turdidae used to be the case

Thanks for the reminder! Now you mention it, I remember hearing it had changed,..but swiftly forgot, obviously! Give it a few years and it will probably be back where it started...or part of the Accipitriformes...
I suspect that the few facts regarding taxonomy that have managed not to leak out of my head over the years are now all, every single one now out of date!
No worries Such is the Joy of learning - if its any consolation I once mistook a bin liner in a tree for a Blackbird in fairness at some distance ;-)
