Red Wrens of Caba 2016

28th January 2017
As well as having stunning panoramic views, Cabarita Headland is listed as an "Endangered Ecological Community". It is classified as a "Themeda Grassland" and is rare and fragile. This fragile environment is home to a tiny bird - the gorgeous little Red-backed Fairy Wren. It is the smallest of the fairy-wrens weighing only 8 gms. They are endemic to Australia and spend much of their days foraging for insects. The male is very colourful with his bright red plumage which he uses to attract females. The females, though only brown in colour are very cute and when not foraging they all cuddle up together in the branches under thick cover!
