Here at the Superb City Wrens project, we want to take better care of fairy-wrens in our cities and towns. And we need your help! Become a ‘wren watcher’ and help us learn where superb fairy-wrens are living and foraging in inner Melbourne. Your sightings will be used to guide restoration works, improve habitat, and help us learn how well these have worked.
