Them’s fighting words!

For their size, Superb Fairy-wrens are incredibly determined and feisty birds.

This male has spent much of the past week singing enthusiastically and attacking its reflection in the kitchen window, the side windows and mirrors of the car.

  1. They are so vain, just hate it that they wear themselves out with their own reflection.

  2. We have one in Clarke lane who’s been at it for weeks! Think about it in Darwinian terms. Kitchen windows and car mirrors tie up the testosterone inflamed narcissists whilst the youngsters lower down the pecking order are getting off with his mother, his sisters, his cousins and all the gels next door!!
