Hi Birders,

This morning outside my window, I watched  two male Superb fairy-wrens, in full 
breeding plumage  cuddling together, on a branch.  One was busy preening, and 
the other kept shuffling along the branch to maintain very close contact.

All other times I have watched two breeding adults in the same area, they were 
chasing each other away.

Anyone else noticed this type of behaviour ?
