Superb Fairy Wren (Male)

Malurus cyaneus

Description:

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. (From "Birds in Backyards")

Habitat:

I saw a number of the male Wrens flitting about trees in a neighbouring yard to where I was attending a birthday party in the Maitland Suburb of Abberglasslyn in the Hunter Valley N.S.W. recently

Thank you Maplemoth. Yes it is a lovely looking little bird. It's mating season now and that is why the blue is really bright
