Japanese Robins


Japanese Robin

The Japanese Robin aka Komadori (Erithacus akahige, formerly Luscinia akahige) is a songbird.

Recent research suggests that the East Asian robins belong into a new genus uniting them with some East Asian Luscinias such as the Siberian Blue Robin (Seki, 2006).

The name "Japanese Robin" is also sometimes used for the Red-billed Leiothrix (Leiothrix lutea).


Distribution / Range:

Japanese Robins have a large range, with an estimated global Extent of Occurrence of 100,000-1,000,000 km2. They can be found in East Asia, Japan and on Ryukyu Island.
