The family of Australasian Robins is found in Australasia and on some islands in the western Pacific. The body length is between 10 cm and 22 cm. They have a sturdy body, a large rounded head and large eyes. Forests are their habitat. They feed mainly on insects and other small invertebrates, which they prey by pouncing from a perch. Typically, they also cling to a trunk sideways motionless to observe their surroundings. Most species live monogamous, the female builds an open cup-shaped nest while it is fed by the male. Usually eggs are laid and incubated several times a year.
