“Notes on the status and behaviour of the purple-crowned fairy-wren Malurus coronatus in the Victoria River Downs area, Northern Territory.”
“The threatened purple-crowned fairy-wren (Malurus coronatus) has a major stronghold in riparian vegetation in this ecoregion, particularly along the Victoria River.”
“Vegetation change associated with pastoral impact led to decreases and local extinctions of some bird species, especially those associated with riparian areas, such as white-browed robin (Poecilodryas superciliosa) and purple-crowned fairy-wren.”
“The threatened purple-crowned fairy-wren (Malurus coronatus) has been lost from much of the Ord and Fitzroy River systems, mostly because of trampling and overgrazing of riparian vegetation, but persists in the ecoregion in less disturbed areas.”
“But as I puzzled over which male models were super, and why, and caught up on celebrities I'd never heard of, one thing seemed clear: when it came to men's fashion, the fairy-wren paradigm didn't hold.”
“Among another Australian species of cooperatively breeding birds, the superb fairy-wren, dominant males notice when their helpers are less than superb about paying their taxes.”
“That suggests, says Magrath, that, rather than being hard-wired, the fairy-wren needed to have heard the scrubwrens 'alarm call, and learnt that it meant danger.”
“Fairy and scrubwrens have very similar alarm calls - a high-pitched piping noise - so the fairy-wren may have automatically recognised the alarm call of the scrubwren.”
