CommentNot living close to a reflective water source I looked for alternative reflections and was rewarded by the behaviour of this Splendid Fairy-wren trying to see off his "rival" in my car mirror. The energy they expend during breeding season is enormous, and I was happy to leave before he'd exhausted himself. In the process he left a nice reflection on the top of the mirror.
