Superb Fairy Wren

Superb Fairy Wren


These birds were photographed at the edge of what I like to refer to as the superb Fairy Wrens’ habitat, in central Queensland. The male with the blue marking is quite ruffled by the hot winds.


These little birds are quick when they move they even sing in bright musical trills. They are delicate and beautiful. They live in in family groups. These groups have more than 100 birds. This group was small, about twenty, birds living in the reeds and weeds (see the female) as the edge of a   water hole. This male took a vantage point to have a look around.

True, we don’t see what we don’t want to see but the issues are still there. The sooner we face them the sooner we can go on. At least you divorced earlier than the 38 years it took my parents to divorce! Somethings are better sooner than later though my dad did find his true love in his 70s which was wonderful to see. Thanks for always making me think at 6am! Love your posts!
