Superb Fairy-wren 2

I am not quite sure if this is an immature male or a female. My first instinct was that it was a female but, due to the blue tinge in the tail feathers, I hesitate. There is no distinctive head colouring appearing to suggest it is a male. Refer to my photograph of the flamboyant male Blue Fairy Wren here. I have a particular soft spot for these elusive little birds, particularly for the delightfully delicate females (commonly known as Jenny Wrens).

Superb Fairy-wren
