Endemic to Australia, the white-winged fairy-wren (Malurus leucopterus) has three distinctive subspecies that are separated geographically between mainland Australia and two islands off the west coast. The most striking white-winged fairy-wren individuals are the breeding males of the mainland subspecies, which have deep cobalt blue plumage. Mainland white-winged fairy-wrens breed in cooperative groups, a behaviour which is much less pronounced in the two island subspecies. The two island endemic subspecies of white-winged fairy-wren are considered to be vulnerable within their range.
