Malurus lamberti assimilis
After half an hour of stalking, this was the only photo i got. This bird was worth it
Beautiful! Well done!
Ill have to upload a photo of the grey, thanks for the info lori.tas.
In the winter, fairy-wrens look like little round puff balls with tails. I'll have to find a photo of one and post it.
That bird looks so chubby. :)
The grey is the clinking curawong (from their call). Only, in Tasmania, just to confuse things, the grey is black. The only visible difference between the two is that the grey has white tail covert feathers, Which, of course, are the hardest feathers to spot. So far, I've gotten a few good shots of the black, but none of the grey.
black or grey currawong? We have the Grey currawongs in perth.
The birds here certainly toy with me. I've been hearing the clinking curawong all day, every day, for the last week. Really, really loudly, and obviously close by, but when ever they take to the air they're 100 meters or more away. Damn cagey critters
I had a feeling they were just toying with me, saw the females (and non breeding males) everywhere but until i changed direction the head male eluded me
Well spotted. I'm impressed with your stalking skills.
Thanks for the info
Steven, we don't have wrens in Malaysia. I was in Perth last year and I saw one of them fairy-wrens. Tried to shoot it but most of my shots turned out blurry.
Thanks guys, divemuster what types of wren do you see?
beautiful bird + photo!
Cant wait to see the picture, they sure are hard to photo. And thanks again Linda and Leanne
Not an easy bird to get on camera. These fellas are so jumpy. Love the colour on the head.
You're welcome. Our Aussie wrens are worth the trouble. I spent ages yesterday trying to get a shot of a Red-Backed Fairy-wren. I missed him....but I will get him!
What a beautiful little bird! So glad you got a photo to share with us. thank you!
It certainly was, thanks for the comment LeanneGardner
Great catch! Well worth your stalking :)
