This is the 11th painting in my Fairy Wrens of Australia series. It features a male Lovely Fairy Wren (Malurus Amabilis) perched on a branch. It is commonly found in northeastern Australia in subtropical or tropical areas of dry forest or moist lowland forest areas. It belongs to a group of four very similar species of fairy wrens know collectively as Chestnut-shouldered fairy wrens, the other three species that make up this group are the variegated fairy wren, the red winged fairy wren and the blue breasted fairy wren.
