Author's notes

There was a group of about six Superb Fairy-wrens in the grass to the north of the restaurant on the summit of Red Hill. They were calling as they moved though the grass towards the east. My photographs were all of females but I suspect there may have been some immature males in the group. However, I could not see a blue male among the group.
