Red Backed Fairy Wren

Here’s a little dickie bird I have often wanted to photograph. It’s a bit hard because they are small and fast and move a lot. This one is a boy. Reason I know this is because it is pretty. Nobody but a dedicated dickie bird fancier would photograph the girly Red Backed Fairy Wren. This bloke was on his own, so I’m fairly sure he is a Gen Y dickie. Now I always thought that the Red Backed Fairy Wren had a harem as I normally see them with a heap of girlys. But, turns out that all babies look like girlys so it is more likely that I have seen a boy with its family on a nice outing. They are actually socially monogamous and sexually promiscuous. Anyway, I have to get back to the weeding. Here’s your pic:
