The photo is one Vince took this morning of a little fairy wren. These tiny birds can become very quiet and will feed from your hand or sit on your knee once you’ve gain their confidence. The females aren’t nearly as pretty but the little males are a very bright blue in the mating season. This little wren looks like a man on a mission, doesn’t he?

There are so many varieties of wrens. Never saw one that color before really cool! Is that variety native to Australia or that area of the world. We have Carolina wrens and house wrens in the U.S. But not as colorful as that male. Not even close! P.S. I have gotten the Carolina wren to come real close to me for a peanut. I did get one to take the peanut from my hand a few times which was really neat. I'll usually put a tray of peanuts on my deck picnic table for them.
