jangurney: DSC04692 - NZ Bellbird. Captain Cook explained it's song as 'like small bells exquisitely tuned'. This one is at Auckland Zoo, and most people are not likely to see one in the wild.
jangurney: DSC02056 - ID anyone? (and it's not a sparrow) It's beak is longer and sharper and it seemed to prefer to be on the ground and it's chest was whiteish with brown streaks.
jangurney: DSC_5589 Pulled over at a popular spot for taking photos and got attacked by keas, intent on stripping everything off the roof of our bus. We made a hasty retreat with no photos of the scenery.
jangurney: P1320162 Finally got a shot of a 'can't sit still for a second' fantail. Now to get one with his tail in a fan.
jangurney: DSC_6081- I hopped out to take a photo of them and this fellow hopped in. New Zealand weka. They were at a car park so I guess they are used to people and taking food from them.
jangurney: P1170639 Kingfisher and as always just that little bit too far away and thru the car window.
jangurney: DSCN0912 NZ Wood pigeon - Kereru. As a was taking the photo I could see him blowing out his chest. In the big pine tree at the bottom of the garden..
