"Adult male Fairywrens are amongst the most brightly coloured of the Australian wren species, especially during the breeding season. These coloured males are often accompanied by a bank 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 Fairywren not yet ready to attain his breeding plumage. He is a member of my repertoire of Happy Wrensday oil paintings, a collection of small painting created 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 naming this little fellow "Banksia Fairywren"
