One of the little birds that darted quickly around our campsite was a Blue and White Wren – or for those technically minded – Malurus leucopterus.
The photo is most probably a female – described as “dullest and palest female fairy wren: pale mouse brown above, tail washed pale grey-blue; off white below; flanks buffish, bill sandy-brown.” **
We found these inquisitive little birds were prepared to come quite close to us as we sat in our chairs at our campsite. However, if we moved, that quickly fly to a safe distance.
They continually pecked through the ground looking for small insects or small pieces of food.
