Superb Fairy Wren

This afternoon I spent some time outdoors photographing the wrens when they came into the garden. They're the sweetest little 14 cm bird, darting about like little mice here and there and with a high-pitched trill-voice. 

Will share more during the week, but here's a favourite for starters.

"darting around like little mice" is a good description I can relate to. Pretty little birds there are.

I love this little bird, what colors and stance, like it's ready to just flit-gone again. Is it cold there? never mind you are in your summertime right now yes? It is so fun to meet people from such another part of the world and realize our seasons are opposite.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a wonderful comment.
peace n abundance,

This little cutie is all puffed up looking like he's been for a morning wash in your bird-bath Carole.
