Australia's Fairy-wrens

We didn't have a list of birds we 'needed' to see before we left.  We did buy an app to help identify birds and found out about fairy-wrens.
They are fairly common but still spectacularly colorful birds.  They also aren't particularly shy, but the variegated prefers dense shrubbery.
We found three varieties.

Variegated Fairy-wren
Superb Fairy-wren
Red-backed Fairy-wren

Fortunately, we saved several for our next trip.
