Red Backed Fairy Wren and Superb Fairy Wren
This little bird is the smallest of the wren species in Australia.
In fact it’s smaller than a sparrow and because it’s so small, that it’s called the Elfin wren.

The males of course have all the colour being a glossy black with a scarlet patch, whilst the females are brown.
They can't be mistaken for a sparrow because they're smaller and have that characteristic pointing up tail, bouncing around like little ping pong balls.
Let’s find out what’s great about this bird.
Smaller and shyer than the Superb Fairy Wren , the Red Backed Fairy Wren has a similar call.
|Female Red Backed Fairy Wren, not red at all.|
But most of us won’t see this Fairy Wren because Red-backed Fairy-wrens are essentially birds of Australia's north where they are mainly restricted to the more humid zones closer to the coast.
In eastern Australia they do extend south down the NSW north coast to near Newcastle and in W.A. south to Cape Keraudren, again along the coast.
Apparently they’re common around the outskirts of Brisbane and Darwin.
