[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus),
also known as Superb Blue-wren or colloquially as Blue wren, is a common and familiar passerine bird of
the Maluridae family. Sedentary and territorial, it is found across south-eastern Australia. The species
exhibits a high degree of sexual dimorphism; the male in breeding plumage has a striking bright blue forehead,
ear coverts, mantle and tail with a black mask and black or dark blue throat. Non-breeding males, females and
juveniles are predominantly grey-brown in colour; this gave the early impression that males were polygamous as
all dull-coloured birds were taken for females.
