Superb Fairy-wrens

Here are a couple of photos of some female Superb Fairy-wrens. Well at least I am pretty sure they are.
Note the reddish bill and the russet ring around the eyes.
And the tail feathers are brownish.

The light got so bad I had to use flash on this one.

The male in eclipse(out of breeding season) can look a little like the female except the bill is blackish and the tail feathers are blueish.. and no red circle around the eyes.
.
I think that is right. as far as I know.
