Author's notes

I saw a group of, possibly four, Superb Fairy-wrens moving through some low trees and shrubs. Initially the only birds I could see were female but eventually I saw a male. As I have seen before, there were Silvereyes in the same trees, apparently moving in a similar direction as the fairy-wrens but with no indication of territorial issues.
