Variegated Fairywren (Malurus lamberti lamberti)

  • Best viewed large. This little guy was found on Yango Creek Road, Wollombi, NSW. I intend to post three of the four species of chestnut-shouldered fairywrens over the next three days, these are very similar species of fairywren (with red shoulders) that do not interbreed and occupy different habitat even though their ranges overlap. Another name is Lambert’s Fairy-wren. Distributed over 90% of the Australian continent, this Australian endemic is found in scrubland with plenty of vegetation providing dense cover. It prefers rocky outcrops and patches of Acacia, Eremophila or lignum in inland and northern Australia. They have been reported to shelter in mammal burrows to avoid extreme heat. Like all fairywrens, the variegated fairywren is an active and restless feeder, particularly on open ground near shelter, but also through the lower foliage. Movement is a series of jaunty hops and bounces, its balance assisted by a relatively large tail, which is usually held upright, and rarely still. The short, rounded wings provide good initial lift and are useful for short flights, though not for extended jaunts. During spring and summer, birds are active in bursts through the day and accompany their foraging with song. Insects are numerous and easy to catch, which allows the birds to rest between forays. The group often shelters and rests together during the heat of the day. Food is harder to find during winter and they are required to spend the day foraging continuously. Like other fairywrens, male variegated fairywrens have been observed carrying brightly coloured petals to display to females as part of a courtship ritual. In this species, the petals that have been recorded have been yellow. Petals are displayed and presented to a female in the male fairywren's own or another territory. The variegated fairywren is a cooperative breeding species, with pairs or small groups of birds maintaining and defending small territories year-round. It is one of nine species of the genus Malurus, commonly known as fairywrens, endemic to Australia. On this Australian trip I managed shots of seven species missing out on the Lovely and the Purple-crowned. Within the genus it belongs to a group of four very similar species known collectively as chestnut-shouldered fairywrens. The other three species are the lovely fairywren, the blue-breasted fairywren, and the red-winged fairywren. In his 1982 monograph, ornithologist Richard Schodde proposed a northern origin for the chestnut-shouldered fairywren group due to the variety of forms in the north and their absence in the southeast of the continent. Ancestral birds spread south and colonised the southwest during a warm and wetter period around 2 million years ago at the end of the Pliocene or beginning of the Pleistocene. Subsequent cooler and drier conditions resulted in the loss of habitat and fragmentation of populations. South-western birds gave rise to what is now the red-winged fairywren, while those in the northwest of the continent became the variegated fairywren. Further warmer, humid conditions again allowed birds to spread southwards; this group, occupying central southern Australia east to the Eyre Peninsula, became the blue-breasted fairywren. Cooler climate then resulted in this being isolated as well and evolving into a separate species. Finally, after the end of the last glacial period 12,000–13,000 years ago, the northern variegated forms again spread southwards. This has resulted in the ranges of all three species overlapping. The fairywren's are unrelated to the true wrens. Initially, fairywrens were thought to be a member of the Old World flycatcher family, or the warbler family, Sylviidae, before being placed in the newly recognised Australasian wren family, Maluridae, in 1975. More recently, DNA analysis has shown the family to be related to the honeyeaters (Meliphagidae) and the pardalotes (Pardalotidae) in a large superfamily, Meliphagoidea. The Maluridae are one of the many families to have emerged from the great corvid radiation in Australasia: Passerines peculiar to Australasia, descended from the crow family, Corvidae and now occupying a vast range of roles and sizes; examples include wrens, robins, magpies, thornbills, pardalotes, the huge honeyeater family, treecreepers, lyrebirds, birds-of-paradise and bowerbirds. The latest evidence regarding the evolution of Corvus species indicates descent within the Australasian family Corvidae. However, the branch that would produce the modern groups such as jays, magpies, and large, predominantly black Corvus species had left Australasia and were concentrated in Asia by the time the Corvus species evolved. Corvus has since re-entered Australia (relatively recently) and produced five species with one recognized subspecies. Wikipedia.

  • Date of photography: 2016-01-12 13:22:15
  • Geographical coordinates of the taken: 32°58'54"S - 151°7'4"O
  • Best viewed large. This male was found near Wollombi, NSW, Australia in January last year. These bowerbirds are fascinating and I find this male very difficult to photograph as he is very skittish and I need perfect light to get any detail in the black! Satin Bowerbirds are endemic to Eastern Australia and are the only member of the genus Ptilonorhynchus.. Females and immature birds look similar and the young males take seven years to take on adult plumage. So he is at least seven years old and definitely knows how to avoid being photographed! Males, females and juveniles all have striking violet-blue eyes. Bowerbirds make up the bird family Ptilonorhynchidae. The family has 20 species in eight genera. They are renowned for their unique courtship behaviour, where males build a structure and decorate it with sticks and brightly coloured objects in an attempt to attract a mate. Though bowerbirds have traditionally been regarded as closely related to the birds of paradise, recent molecular studies suggest that while both families are part of the great corvid radiation that took place in or near Australia-New Guinea, the bowerbirds are more distant from the birds of paradise than was once thought. Like all Ptilonorhynchidae, satin bowerbirds are predominantly frugivorous as adults, though they also eat leaves and a small amount of seeds and insects. As nestlings, however, they are largely fed on beetles, grasshoppers and cicadas until they can fly. Wikipedia.

  • Date of photography: 2015-09-20 16:47:58
  • Geographical coordinates of the taken: 32°58'54"S - 151°7'4"O
  • Best viewed large. This male was found near Wollombi, NSW, Australia in September 2015. Also known as the superb blue-wren or colloquially as the blue wren. The superb fairywren is common throughout most of the relatively wet and fertile south-eastern corner of Australia. Like all fairywrens, the superb fairywren is an active and restless feeder, particularly on open ground near shelter, but also through the lower foliage. Movement is a series of jaunty hops and bounces, with its balance assisted by a proportionally large tail, which is usually held upright, and rarely still. The short, rounded wings provide good initial lift and are useful for short flights, though not for extended jaunts. Superb fairywrens are predominantly insectivorous. He is one of 12 species in the genus Malurus and is most closely related to the Splendid Fairy-wren. He is endemic to South Eastern Australia and Tasmania. Wikipedia.

  • Geographical coordinates of the taken: 32°58'54"S - 151°7'4"O
  • Best viewed large. Found just out of Wollombi, NSW, Sept 2015 The Australian king parrot is endemic to eastern Australia ranging from Cooktown in Queensland through to Port Campbell in Victoria. Found in humid and heavily forested upland regions of the eastern portion of the continent, including eucalyptus wooded areas in and directly adjacent to subtropical and temperate rainforest. They feed on fruits and seeds gathered from trees or on the ground. The species belongs to the genus Alisterus, whose three members are known as king parrots: Australian king parrot, the Papuan king parrot (New Guinea) and the Moluccan king parrot (Indonesian islands including the Maluku Islands).
