The males during the breeding season is very distinct with it's sapphire blue head and it's chirping that you will hear quite often when he is around. The females are a dull brown with a small orange 'mask' stretching from the eyes to the beak. They are small birds that flitter from bush to bush. During the non-breeding season they are a dull brown for both the male and female.
Superb Fairy-wrens are found south of the Tropic of Capricorn through eastern Australia and Tasmania to the south-eastern corner of South Australia.
These are very beautiful birds! I saw them when I drove down to NSW as well as Dolphins, Water Dragons, some type of Skink and a type of beautiful King Fisher
