Following on the Birds at Wharepuke theme my mother took these beautiful photos here yesterday.

NZ Native Birds at Wharepuke. The Fantail, Tui and Kereru are the 3 most common here

2 great photos of fantails! Anyone who has tried to take photos of fantails will know that they won’t stay still and you end up with lots of photos of blurry bits of feather disappearing off the edge. The Tui , a NZ Honeyeater,  has 2 voice boxes and produce extraordinary song. Many notes are beyond what the human ear can hear.
