Adorable, rather tame songbird of shady broadleaf forests on the Ryukyu Islands, where it is endemic. Bright reddish-orange above, white below, with black throat and breast in male (trace of black in neck of female). Pumps the tail and flutters wings regularly, much like other robins. Most readily seen on hiking trails beside streams during the earlier hours of the day. Gives high-pitched calls and beautiful whistling songs.
