Banksia Wren - Superb Fairywren.

“Banksia Fairy-wren”


Adult male Fairy-wrens are among the most brightly coloured of the wren species, especially during the breeding season. These coloured males are often accompanied by a band of brown “jenny wrens” assumed to be a harem of females, but a proportion of the assumed harem are males which have not yet attained their breeding plumage.

This is my version of a “jenny wren”.  A male Superb Fairy-wren not yet ready to attain his breeding plumage.  He is a member of my repertoire of Happy Wrensday oil paintings,  a collection of small paintings in celebration of our beautiful unique Australian wrens.

Thank you to wildlife photographer Kimberly Wormald – Lirralirra for graciously providing the reference photo for this oil painting and also for naming this little fellow “Banksia Fairywren”
