Male and Female Red-Backled Fairy Wrens

This was as close as I could get to these little guys on this attempt. Hopefully I'll manage to get closer on later attempts.

See where this picture was taken.

    Gorgeous little wrens.

    And very hard to get close to! There's a flock of them that lives around here (about a dozen or so in the flock) and they flit about all over the place (usually accompanied by a Yellow-breasted Robin).

    This is sooooo cute - I love how you managed to get both of them in the same shot :D

    I was narrowing in on the male (red and black) but noticed the female there just before I framed and made sure she was also in the shot. :)

    Thanks :)
    I almost got a decent shot of one of these today, but they saw me coming.
