Hi everyone. I’m a bit lost with regards to the latest updates in eBird – in 
particular, what’s happened to the Variegated Fairy-Wren (VFW). I remember 
reading recently –not sure where – that the VFW Malurus lamberti would remain 
as the wren found roughly on the east side of the Great Dividing Range. A new 
species was created for Malurus race assimilis - named the Purple-backed 
Fairy-Wren (PBFW). This species basically covered the rest of the Aussie 
My updated eBird list now has all my wrens lumped under the PBFW name – even 
the birds I’ve reported here on Bribie Island and nearby. I now have none of my 
reports listed as VFW. Can anyone shed some light on this topic??
