Description

This was the only time I have seen variegated fairywrens in the garden - normally it is superb blue wrens. This pair came close to the full length glass windows on the verandah and were not impressed with the other pair they could see in their territory. They spent a great deal of time trying to chase away their reflections, with both male and female taking part, calling and displaying.

Tiny birdies on a drizzly morning. In the first photo it's actually taking a bird-bath on the drenched top leaves of a camellia bush.
