More Superb Fairy-wrens

As the summer has been relatively mild, some birds have continued to raise young. The latest to hatch in our garden are 3 Superb Fairy-wrens chicks.

It takes 3 adult wrens to keep up the food supply and no insect is safe. What struck me this morning is how vulnerable the young birds are to predators as they are still learning to fly and how to balance on small branches.
