A couple of visitors to the backyard today. A reasonably chirpy looking male Superb Fairy-wren in full breeding splendor. I counted 7 in the flock today whereas I normally only see 5 or less. Only one male is still in breeding plumage while another has recently changed back to winter plumage.Male Superb Fairy-wren singing - Malurus cyaneus
