Wow. What beautiful colourful birds they are. Didn't even know they existed. Thanks for sharing.

I was born to live and I live to die.

Thanks for all the comments. Birdie, the answer to youir question is both. Saw them first in WA but we have them here too, in fact saw a small family today about 20 kms south of Alice Springs.

I haven't seen a WWFW either and I'd love to see it one day.
I have only seen a red backed once in Brisbane.

Cheers, Owen.

They are stunning. THey must be some of the most beautiful of the fairy-wrens. I haven't heard of or seen them either, so thanks so much for sharing

I will attempt to upload a pic of a WWFW  I spotted  75 klms east of Border Village SA on 15 Sept 2011 during our around OZ trip .

The Wren was chasing off finches from his patch on the nullabor coast. One down (finch)  one to go.

I am a newby to this , so I hope it works

What a delightful little bird.  Stunning colours.  So he is not phased by the zebras at all?  Puts them in their place?  Good to see.

Wow what a sight they must be to see in the wild, the colours would radiate and nice photos as well.
