It's those simple things that make me happy!😊
Just stopped the car randomly on my way home today to take a photo of the landscape when I saw this tui munching on a kniphofia flower right next to me🐦⚘ I was so happy to get that lucky shot!
The tui is one of New Zealand's native birds and I love the way they sing. They're easily identified by those curled white feather tufts on their throat. Their preferred diet is nectar or honeydew which is why you can see them quite often on flowers or flowering trees!😊🌺🌸🌹
I took heaps of flower, wildlife and landscape photos today at work and on my way back so stay tuned if you want to see more of New Zealand!😊

This cheeky bird is one of New Zealand’s favourite natives - The Fantail. No doubt while you’ve been in NZ you would have seen these beautiful birds hanging out in the trees or flying around. This print is out now on a new women’s tshirt and hoodie. So don’t miss out and head online or in store now!!

In celebration of the Kereru winning the title of New Zealand Bird of the Year, I am offering 15% off both of my Kereru prints, plus FREE shipping!! They are a bit loud and clumsy in their landings, but rather graceful in the air, with many swoops and loop de loops, and they seem to travel in pairs. I always get rather excited about seeing them. Just put KERERU in voucher code at checkout. Shop link in profile. #print #artprint #gilcee #originalart #oneofakind #art #illustration #illustrator #watercolour #inks #handmade #shophanddone #aucklandartist #botanicalprint #floraandfauna #artist #painting #printsforsale #newzealandbird #newzealandbirdandforest #nativenewzealand #bird #nzart #nzartprint #kereru #newzealandmade #nzbirds #birdsofinstagram #newzealandart

Day 21 part tree, ulva again. This time South Island Saddleback. Got to see many of them moving around foraging. They didnt stay still much for easy photos, but it was great to see them. I have never seen them anywhere before. Even when I volunteered at Orana Wildlife Park, I am sure they had North Island Saddleback.

This week our wonderful kiwi team are hosting the annual Kiwi Egg Candling workshop. They are passing on their valuable knowledge about candling and how it’s essential to help our iconic native bird🥚🌿

Tern mating rituals are odd. You might think that these terns have caught these wee fish as a gift for a special feathered companion, which is what I thought, but not one fish changed beaks in the hour I was watching. They fly around a lot with their fish, perch with their fish, and squeak the whole time. Also, the size of the fish might matter, but it might not. Only the terns know. #itmightbelove #nzbirds #terns #whitefrontedtern #birdwatching

This spur-winged plover (Vanellus miles) was determined to drive the harrier (Circus approximans) away from the paddock where the plover likely had eggs or chicks the harrier had been eyeing up. I like the way this photo shows the clear demarcation between the light and dark feathers on the undersides of the plover’s wings.

A Pied Stilt having a little fish for his supper in an estuary.
I've always had a soft spot for waders and, luckily for me, they seem to be much more abundant in NZ.
Although Stilts are not considered a threatened species, other waders such as Oystercatchers, are in decline here. This is due to a number of factors, but increased land use and pollution of breeding areas is definitely having an effect.
All the more reason to #take3forthesea whenever you're at the beach!

Tricky pic for many reasons: it was blowing an intense southerly so was hard to keep my lens still; it’s a fantail and the don’t sit still for long; it’s into a bush with shadows and branches responding to the wind... but it’s the first time I have caught the fan of a fantail! Thanks little fella!

Bullers mollymawk off Taiaroa head

Breeding

Colonies can be densely packed or loose. Buller’s mollymawk are monogamous with shared incubation and chick care. The nest is a pedestal of mud, guano and vegetation accumulated from the immediate vicinity, and is used and added to year after year. The single large (104 x 64 mm) white egg is laid in October-November (northern subspecies) or January-February (southern subspecies) and hatches after 68-72 days. Chicks on the Snares Islands fledge when about 167 days old, mainly in August and September, with stragglers into October. Young are independent at fledging; they begin breeding when about 12 years old, and can live more than 45 years.

Gallus gallus domesticus / Domestic Chicken
Introduced
The domestic chicken has descended through domestication and cultivation from the red junglefowl. This rooster, seen running free near an orchard in Motueka, shows a number of characteristics from this heritage...

I was only reading about these birds last night and then I saw them on the beach today! 🤗
Variable oystercatchers are certainly very striking compared to their monochrome eurasian cousins 🙂

Guess who won #birdoftheyear 2018?..... yep! our name sake with his iridescent green and bronze feathers and smart white vest. The Kereru is the only disperser of large fruits ie.karaka and his disappearance would be a disaster for the regeneration of our native forests. What a mighty bird he is!! https://www.forestandbird.org.nz/resources/kereru-crowned-bird-year-2018

Yep it's the bird everyone's talking about today, the mighty Kereru, Bird Of The Year! This one visits me daily, usually to use the bird bath and munch on the broom that I let grow wild (just for the Kereru).

New Zealand has voted its native wood pigeon, the kereru, Bird of the Year. An excellent result for this roundest of birds. I photographed this one on Tiri Tiri Matangi island. I was in fact trying to spot a kokako I could hear calling, when I had the feeling I was being watched. 😳#birdoftheyear #nzbirds #kereru #tiritirimatangi #pigeon
