Not a native of NZ, but a cute little Aussie. The splendid fairywren is a bird in the Australasian wren family. It is also known simply as the splendid wren or more colloquially in Western Australia as the blue wren. Male birds in breeding plumage shimmer in electric shades of violet-blue, turquoise and pale-blue, relieved only by a few bands of inky black feathers. These birds live in arid to semi-arid areas, in mostly dense shrublands or woodlands of acacia, and mallee eucalypt with dense shrubs.
