Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus)

This male bird is in mating attire. From what I have read, its feathers are brown when it is not looking for a mate. We were inside the apartment in Australia when this bird came knocking on the window pane with its beak and it did so for two days in a row at around the same time in the morning as if it wanted to be let in. I could not get a better shot of this attractive bird because it was hopping around in an agitated manner and when we went outside it flew away.
