CORO - Purple-Crowned Fairywren
Common name: Purple-Crowned Fairywren
Taxonomy: Malurus coronatus coronatus
Level: CARN | Form: WING
Status: RARE | BiOME: RIVER
CORO is one of the only types of fairywrens to form long-term partnerships with their mate, and this comes with special advantages! Using their Duet Superpower, more than 50% of her calls will be unique to her and her partner, meaning CORO can easily defend their territory from intruding COROs that don’t know the right song!
With a strong sense of family ties, CORO will often remain with his parents for the next breeding season. This Family power means more help with protecting nests and finding food for the chicks, and gives CORO a better chance of surviving in the early days of life.
SALiS is the Horsfield’s bronze cuckoo, and is a real danger for CORO. Adult SALiS will wait until CORO isn’t looking, and hide cuckoo eggs in the fairywren’s nest! These parasite eggs have evolved to look the same as CORO’s eggs, making it extra hard for her to tell them apart. Now she’s at risk of raising another bird’s chicks as her own.
CORO is small and vulnerable to attack. When up against a Predator form, he will automatically lose the Clash.
