Bird on the wire..

 

It's not often that I get a chance to take pics of the smaller birds, they flit around too fast, so when I  spotted the sweet wee singing honeyeater I whipped my ever present camera up to take the shots here before it zipped away. The song of this small omnivorous bird has been described as anywhere from scratchy to melodious, yesterday it was the latter. There was a cold wind blowing, hence the puffed up feathers to keep warm, too cute. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  3. Excellent capture! I know the feeling it's not so easy for me to catch them either, especially my visiting peacock that seems to have moved in. Far too skittish for photo snaps and fast on the take off!

  8. What a sleek dear bird. Funny, my bird photos yesterday were captured for exactly the same reason. I was shooting fallen blossoms and had to turn around to see the source of the beautiful song of the Manu o ku bird!

  14. They are so cute Grace. We also get these in our backyard towards the end of the day, flying from one tree to another, but they are always too fast for me!
