The Red-backed Fairy-wrens are tiny birds around 12 cm top to tail. They are the smallest of the Fairy-wrens and are found in tropical and sub-tropical woodland with grass understory. The black one with a red back is the male while the female is the plainer brown.  P1090241

More often than not in the same location (Moonee Beach Nature Reserve on the north coast of NSW) we see the lovely blue (male) Superb Fairy-wren or perhapes the Variegated Fairy-wrens at play.
