Blue Wren

I spent the day at home for my birthday this week.

I spent some time sitting outside reading, and a family of blue wrens hopped around me. There was a female, a male and what looked to be an immature male - with just some of the striking blue. They are so small, and their tinkly sound is just wonderful.

There's been a blue wren nest in our yard most years. Our first year here, it was near the boys' sandpit. Last year it was in a tangled banksia rose - nice and safe from predators.

(And obviously, this is not my photo.)
