Continue along the track beside the fence and return along the firebreak that is parallel and close to Chester Pass Road. Allow 1. More

Blue-breasted Fairy-wrens were inhibited by gaps greater than about 60 m, whereas White-browed Babblers crossed gaps of at least 270 m wide. For each species, the rate of dispersal mortality per unit distance traveled was about the same. More

Blue-breasted Fairy-wren in fragmented habitat in the Western Australian wheatbelt Lesley Brooker and Michael Brooker Abstract The distribution of Blue-breasted Fairy-wrens, Malurus pulcherrimus, in 12 million hectares of the central wheatbelt of Western Australia was determined from 'presence/absence' records obtained from a search of 273 10′ blocks of latitude and longitude, supplemented with 'presence-only' records from the Birds Australia Atlas II, the literature and unpublished records.

The blue-breasted fairy-wren, Malurus pulcherrimus, is a small, permanently sedentary, socially monogamous, co-operatively breeding, long-lived Australian passerine, whose core distribution is contained within the Western Australian wheatbelt. Little is known of their dispersal capabilities and population dynamics, knowledge of which are urgently needed as their preferred habitat becomes increasingly fragmented and degraded, due to clearing for agriculture.
