Superb Fariywren

Superb Fairywrens are common backyard birds and I've lived places where they are plentiful and come close to people. That is not the situation here, where Magpies, Currawongs, Miners, Mynas and Starlings rule the roost. These tiny fairywrens need the protection of the undergrowth and it is easy to see how their range becomes restricted. 

This male was photographed on the mountain. I'll work on getting a clearer photo in due course, but the last thing I want to do is disturb these beautiful wrens.


  1. We have a family living in our yard, or next door, so I get to see them most days. It's always lovely watching them, and hearing their cheery song.

  2. My you're speedy! Do you have any good photos of yours? I live in a new area so the birds have not moved in yet. Maybe that is why I go out looking for them!

    When birds I consider common such as these wrens, are rarely seen on my usual walks I do feel concerned. I'm hoping to see them more in the summer.
