Superb Fairy Wren (Female)

Malurus cyaneus


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. (From Birds in Backyards)


I saw this solitary female in one of the trees in my backyard. It was bobbing around as they normally do


I particularly notice how this one looks like a ball of fluff in the first photo :-)
