Not simply Superb, but Splendid, too

This is a male Superb Fairy Wren, in his beautiful blue mating plumage. You can see how hard it would be to refuse such a handsome guy.

I have also discovered that a close cousin lives on the west coast of Australia. They have even bluer mating plumage and they are called Splendid Fairy Wrens.

So sweet and such a beautiful color. And what a wonderful moniker.

They are beautiful. A beautiful name, beautiful plumage, and I've never heard of them before!
