Variegated Fairy-wren

The fairy-wrens in this part of the Kimberley are the most beautiful bird. Far more colourful than the ones we get around SE Australia, though the most interesting bit is the satin black on the front. I've never seen anything as satin and black on an animal. I think this is race Rogersi, though the guides are not very clear.
