We’ve recently moved and to my delight we have a family of Fairy Wrens in our garden… So I’ve been watching and waiting, they now seem comfortable with me getting a bit closers, oh and they are so cheeky.

Narrabri, NSW, Australia.

Superb Fairy-wren

Adult male Superb Fairy-wrens are among the most brightly coloured of the species, especially during the breeding season. They have rich blue and black plumage above and on the throat. The belly is grey-white and the bill is black. Females and young birds are mostly brown above with a dull red-orange area around the eye and a brown bill. Females have a pale greenish gloss, absent in young birds, on the otherwise brown tail. The legs are brown in both sexes. Males from further inland and in the south-west of the range have more blue on the back and underparts.

    this is a cracker of a capture Liza, knowing how skittish these gorgeous little dudes can be. I had 11 of them dancing around my spud patch one morning, but do you think they would sit still…..??
    I have lots of blurred rubbish to show for that!

  • Thanks David.

    Wow Liza – you must be so patient to capture such a good shot of a blue wren – they don’t sit still for a split second.
