Wild Bird Wednesday - Superb Blue Fairy Wren

My Blue wrens have finally donned their 
little blue coats and are fiercely defending their territory

This little animation is cheating pure and simple.
My photos but my son's expertise in
creating the rotating animation.

So far I have safely reached Sydney and had a lot 
of fun on the Indian-Pacific Railway
and am now enjoying springlike temperatures 
and a lot of plum blossom and camellias
although the landscape around the ex gold mining 
town of Bathurst was white with frost and the smaller dams
were ice covered at dawn.

More of that in my next OUR WORLD  post.

  1. Das ist ein netter und schöner kleiner Vogel, und auch sehr flink und beweglich :)

  2. cutest bird in the world, i think! enjoy your travels!

  3. Such a beautiful bird!! I've never seen one of these!! Great post for the day, Arija, as always!!

  4. Wow! Never seen this beautiful little bird. Never been to Australia, so maybe that's why! I hope to be visiting family in Australia in the next two-three years, so I will have to be on the lookout!

  5. Very clever animation which captures the restless motion of small birds perfectly.

  6. The fairy wren is indeed superb.
    I spent a number of years living in Bathurst - and remember those brisk mornings.

  7. Sounds like you're traveling, Arija - will love seeing your spring photos.

  8. Such a sweet, sharp looking bird. Sounds like you're on a good adventure!

  9. What a beauty!! and, what fun watching it strut its' stuff...

  10. I like the animation you have going here. Wrens are amazing birds but I don't think I've seen one so least we don't have the blue variety here:) One day I'd love to put the Wrens together in a collage and just compare their colors, faces and feather tones. Thanks for sharing this magical little bird.

  11. Wonderful birds!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

    PS: hope you have found some glasses!

  12. "Superb" is the right adjective. Enjoy your trip Arija.

  13. Spring!? It seems a little way off but then I am in Melbourne!! Enjoyed the animation!

  14. Arija, I love that little bird and it's name! I hope you are having fun!

  15. SO lovely!

    Sorry I've not been commenting lately but a tendinitis (shoulder + elbow) is forcing me to stay away from the computer as much as possible - repeated movements of the arm is all I have to avoid...

  16. Such an adorable little bird!

  17. The wrens are sweet. Glad you are having fun in Sydney.
