Wild Bird Wednesday 128 - Superb Fairy Wren

I can't help but think that if I had seen models of birds like this as a kid I would have thought that they were just a Christmas tree decoration!  How time change.

I found this superb Superb Fairy-Wren last week in a pause between showers.  Superb indeed.

I just want to thank all the people who have linked, clicked, commented and hopefully enjoyed WBW this year.

128 weeks is a long time, but as far as I know, I and WBW will still be here each Wednesday for 2015!




Consider these a Christmas gift from Australia, where it is summer and the days are long. SM

This is a gorgeous little bird. I was able to see it but they were so busy it was almost impossible to catch them in camera. And, of course, we did not have much time to spare as we were driving up north.

Thanks to you for hosting the meme or I would probably never get my species posted :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

I love the Fairy Wren, excellent images you have made.

Florida Farm Girl said...

Oh, I love those little guys. Perhaps one of these years I'll see one for real but meanwhile I'll just enjoy yours vicariously.

Merry Christmas, Stewart, to you and your family.

Oh how I would love to have one of these beauties at my feeders. It is indeed a gift just to see one, though so far away. Thank you, I can't think of a more thoughtful gift, Stewart. Or maybe your gift has been 128 weeks committed to our passion with your excellent photography and commentary. Yes, you are the gift, I believe and this little Fairy Wren is just the Piece de Risitance. Merry Christmas, Stewart, to you and your wonderful family. I look forward to another year of WBW.

A great series of photos. I think all the Fairy-Wrens are so beautiful - but I just wish they would sit still for a bit longer!

Hi Stewart and belated Christmas wishes. I finally caught up with you and outpaced the seasonal things to do. Many thanks for hosting the Photo Gallery each week and Best Wishes for 2015.

You're dead right about the Superb Fairy Wren - it look almost too superb to be true, like a little fluffy toy you might find in a Christmas gift shop.

Marie said...

Gorgeous bird! It has to be one of my all-time favorite new bird discoveries (via blogging!) Wow!
