Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small bird with a long blue and white tail that is held cocked. Tail is much shorter than that of Variegated Fairywren. Breeding male has a pale blue helmet, brownish wings, and a white belly. Females and non-breeding males are similar to each other - they are completely white underneath (all the way up to their chin), with blue back, crown and cheeks. They have white eyerings and white in front of their eyes - giving them a spectacled appearance. This species is typically found on the edges of rainforests, mangroves, and dense vegetation in coastal far northern Queensland where it is the only "blue" fairywren.
