With its rich blue and black feathers, especially on point during the breeding season, the adult male Superb Fairy-wren is one of the most colourful bird species in Australia. Found in south-eastern Australia, its rich blue and black feathers above its throat, a grey and white belly and a black bill make this guy the Chris Hemsworth of Australian birds. He stands out in a crowd. The young and female Superb Fairy-wrens are mostly brown and dull orange… urgh so boring 😛 This is a species of bird where the boys way out-pretty the girls. They feed in small social groups, hunting mostly on the ground eating insects and small spiders ♥
