  1. Oh, they are very beautiful birds! And what a ‘variation’ between sub-species. I had no idea there were so many different fairy-wrens.

  2. A great write up of some of our sweet little birds to showcase our beautiful native species to the world. Wonderful pictures of the lovely little wrens Ashley. I have trouble getting decent photos of them as they move quickly!

    • Thanks Sue, and sorry for the delay in comment we have been away birding in a place that does not have good communication facilities. Yes the wrens are always on the move which aids in their their protection from predators.

    • Thanks Jen, thanks for your warm comments. I apologise for not replying earlier as we were away on a beautiful island birding, and the communication was not so good for me to reply there. Yes the red backed fairy-wren is quite stunning in contrast when viewed even from a distance. Enjoy your week end!

  5. Thanks HJ, it is a great delight to actually catch them in the sunlight, and the brightness and iridescence of their colours is most striking. It is great we can share our birds with each other. Enjoy your weekend!

    • Thanks Kelly, it is surprising that we have so many species and subspecies of particular birds inhabiting different parts of our continent. I am really keen to see the the other Fairy-wrens when I get the chance to travel to these places again. Enjoy your weekend!
