If Black Swans were a shock to the early european settlers in Australia, I really can't image the impact that this bird would have had.
This is a male Superb Fairy Wren (Malurus cyaneus) singing its heart out to let other know who is boss.
These birds are tiny as mice, and just as fast. They tend to gather in family groups, so it is rare to see one on its own. While not as vocal as some wrens, these fairy wrens make up for that in colour.
This is the typical "blue wren" of South-East Australia, and one day I hope to be able to get decent images of some of these other species.
I don't have time to do much more today - so, sorry for the short post!
Over to you!
