Superb Blue Wren




These beautiful little native blue wrens have a nest amongst a vine-covered wall of our house. Sometimes called Superb Fairy-Wrens, the female is also tiny but lacks the male's delightful colours, being light brown in colour.




We often see Superb Blue Wrens flitting around and hear their gentle chirping. However they rarely stay still for a second. I've tried for weeks to snap a decent photo of this resident male to share. This afternoon I have had relative success.







I hope to catch some better photos one day, but these will give you a good idea of their delicate beauty.

We have a pair of Blue Wrens that have visited our front yard a bit over the last few weeks. I have tried to capture them a few times but they move too fast.

No need to apologize, these are great pics-and of such a little beauty! I especially love the last one. Birds are difficult to photograph, I've done some trying myself.

Oh but these are simply stunning! I love the bent branch the first one is on... How God can put so much beauty in something so small as this superb blue wren ... His works are outstanding. Thank you for sharing these beautiful moments that you found of His glory! I am off to gather five bouquets of autumn beauty for something of a Gala in town tonight; See what I discover....
