Interspecific aggressive behaviour between Robins and other birds in Eucalypt Forest.

Records were kept for 328 interactions between Scarlet/Flame Robins and other landbirds at a site in south-eastern New South Wales. Fifty-seven per cent of interactions were between robins and other ground-foragers, particularly with Jacky Winter (41 %). Bark-foragers, foliage-foragers and honey- eaters were rarely, if over, attacked, except when they came near nests of robins. Honeyeaters were responsible for 57 per cent of the attacks directed at robins.
