Our second main goal was Purple-crowned Fairy-wren (new for me in WA). We stopped a few kilometres (maybe 4) along the Ord River where there was a large stand of eucalypts. Between them and the shore was a thicket of an introduced plant Jerusalem Thorn (a Parkinsonia species) mostly covered by wild passionfruit vine. We split up, and after a few groups of Red-backed Fairy-Wrens I found a male Purple-crowned Fairy-wren in breeding plumage plus two other birds. More

Purple-crowned Fairy-wren and search for the best ways to secure its survival is finally reaching its conclusion. The outcomes of this research are far reaching as they will guide our on-ground strategy for conserving this enigmatic little bird and securing its survival for future generations of Australians. In the meantime, we thought you would enjoy an update on some of the important findings arising from this project so far. More

Protecting The Purple-crowned Fairy-wren At Mornington Sanctuary - Two breeding male purple-crowned fairy-wrens Context Although it was once abundant, the lively, charismatic Purple-crowned Fairy-wren is now listed as vulnerable to extinction by the Federal Government. This is largely because their search for suitable habitat is becoming more and more challenging as riparian vegetation is removed for pastoral activities, trampled by cattle, destroyed by frequent hot fires and invaded by weeds. More

Purple-crowned Fairy-wrens build their homes in the thick vegetation that lines the freshwater rivers and creeks (the ‘riparian strip’) of northern Australia. They seem to prefer streams that have a wider strip of vegetation and rarely venture more than 10 m from the creekside vegetation. They are most often associated with tall river grass and canegrass (Cionachne sp. and Mnesithea rottboellioides) and Pandanus stands with high stem density. More

The Purple-crowned Fairy-wren is so distinct in plumage that its affinities with the “Australian blue group” were unrecognized until demonstrated by the biochemical studies of Christidis and Schodde. This species does, however, share the relatively larger size and strong complex calls of the Superb and Splendid Fairy-wrens and, biogeographically, its northern distribution complements theirs in the south.

The Purple-crowned Fairy-wren is territorial, chooses a single mate and lives in pairs or small groups (often holding the same territory for consecutive years). However, towards the end of the breeding season larger groups may be encountered when the juveniles of the year are still with the parents. Only the dominant male and female breed but other group members may help in caring for the young; feeding and protecting them. More

Purple-crowned Fairy-wren habitat In the Victoria River District the wren occupies river grass (Chionachne cyathopoda) sometimes in conjunction with northern cane grass (Mnesithea rottboelioides). River grass forms dense stands along the Victoria River and its tributaries and is often referred to as cane grass, however this term has been used for a multitude of riverine grasses causing some confusion in the past.
