The Red backed fairy wren is a communal bird like a fair amount of the wrens here in Australia and it is not an uncommon site to see a male bird with several females. Red backed fairy wrens are normally found in small thickets, shrubs and heavily grassed or tussock areas these small birds are predominantly found on or close to ground level and are happy to just hop along the ground turning over the leaf litter in search of insects and their larvae. The red backed fairy wren has a wide range and habitat and can be found along the coast and hinterland and far into the inland grassland areas. The Red backed fairy Wren is often seen in groups of up to a dozen individuals and within these loose groups you can often encounter other species such as the Superb blue wren and the Variegated wren. Like a lot of the wrens in Australia the Red backed fairy wren will nest in tussocks or small shrubs close to the ground these nests are very well concealed and blend into the background in a seamless manner. These nests are a dome shape and these small birds raise up to four offspring.
