Make every day Wrensday with a Splendind Fairywren Sweater! These tiiiny cute birdscan be found across Australia in arid, bushy environments. Their small wings are not suited to long flights but are perfect for quickly hopping and zig zagging to catch tasty insect to eat. Their long tail provides them with balance and upwards lift as they jump about. The Splendid Fairywren is famous for its bright blue and turquoise feathers. This is actually the male’s mating plumage- the females find it hotter than Magic Mike. Once mating season is over the male tends to molt and goes back to the dull brown colours like the females. But just because she doesn’t get the blue feathers don’t think the female is a slouch! They are such hard workers, often a female will build 5 or 6 nests a season, with only 1 or 2 nests fledging young. They’ve become very clever and adept at fighting off invading Cuckoos who will try to hide their eggs in the Fairywren nests. How rude!I hope you love this little hero!*If the pre-sale has sold out of what you wanted please email me your preferences to info@ilovelenko and I will notify you when more become available.
