Hi All,

I saw this superb fairy-wren on the weekend and was surprised at the amount of black plumage on him. I've never seen one this dark before.

Is that because I'm not very observant or is he darker than most? Is this full breeding plumage and I've just never noticed them at this time of year??

Many thanks for any information.

My apologies to those who may regard my questions as silly... I've looked at quite a few photos taken by others and didn't really find a bird that looked as dark as this.
