Superb Fairywrens

Superb fairywrens

Superb fairywrens (Malurus cyaneus) are small little birds that bounce around our gardens and fields all year round in Tasmania. One amazing thing about this little bird, measuring only 14 cm, is that the male changes colour. Most of the time he is brownish in colour, resembling the female, but when his hormones start raging and mating season is near, his hood colours bright blue with black markings. They always bring a smile to my face, so I thought Iā€™d bring their smiles out in return šŸ™‚
