13.Superb Fairywren

These birds are amazing singers! Superb Fairywrens are known for their ability to sing amazing tunes. The birds which are found mostly in the eastern parts of Australia, are among the few species of birds that possess strikingly bright colors. Male fairywrens in particular have a distinct color combination of blue and sky blue, while their female counterparts posses a dull grey color. Fairywrens sing to their eggs, and teach a unique note to their hatching babies. This note acts like a ‘pass-code’ between the babies and their mothers, so the babies do not respond to the calls of other birds like cuckoos.
