Good morning...
Thank you for your votes and comments ...
Found this fairy wren captured awhile ago and never uploaded to epz.
Also known as the superb fairywren...they are found in areas of Australia that has dense undergrowth for shelter, including grasslands with scattered shrubs. They are also common in domestic gardens of Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.
This is a male in breeding plumage that has a striking blue forehead and ear coverts. Non breeding males ,females and juveniles are predominantly grey-brown in colour. The superb fairywren is notable for several peculiar behavioral characteristics; the birds are socially monogamous and sexually promiscuous, meaning that although they form pairs between one male and one female, each partner will mate with other individuals and even assist in raising the young from such pairings...
Male wrens pluck yellow petals and display them to females as part of a courtship display.

Always more interesting to hear a narrative with the subject matter Colleen.
Sexually promiscuous indeed.
You wont find any of these sitting in front of my sign on my upload then !!
Good shot.
Mick.
