Suberb Fairy-wren

.

This morning at the Merri Creek a Superb Fairy-wren hopped across the path that I was walking on. I haven't seen one on my walks here for a very long time. They are one of my favourite birds. I like that they randomly appear and just as quickly disappear, so that often all you see is a flash of blue. The wren this morning, hopped in front of me for quite a while.






This is not the bird I saw this morning, but it looked just like this. By the time I got my phone out to take a photo, Milly my dog had caught up with me (she is really slow) and the wren flew away.
