Thanks for popping over so quickly. These little tines are Superb Blue Wrens, the Fairy Wrens we only get a few hundred miles further north, in the desert country.ReplyDelete
So much colour and life in your part of the world.ReplyDelete
The Wren is adorable. Fall colours can be as beautiful as any flower garden.ReplyDelete
Great collection of photos, Arija! The trees and the birds are wonderful. I have always loved your Gallahs and the little Blue Wren is a cutie. Have a happy week!ReplyDelete
She does camouflage well.ReplyDelete
Well spotted, and wonderfully caught. Thank you. Lots. And yes, Autumn is starting to catch fire down this way as well. (One of my most favourite seasons).ReplyDelete
Hi there - take care out in the Wild Wood - its where the weasels live!ReplyDelete
Nice pictures of these splendid little bird.
