Fieldwork: Superb fairy-wrens

This is a tiny bit of my fieldsite. Not too shabby, right?

In case you were wondering this is how the superb fairy-wrens (Malurus cyaneus) look like.

The females are brown, with orange beaks and loral stripes.

Say hello to young MOno

Males in breeding plumage are striking blue and black. The males in eclipse plumage look pretty much like females, but have blue tails, black beaks and black loral stripes. Their faces remind me of a Zorro mask :]
