His & Hers! - Redpoll - NZ - Southland by 


The Redpolls are a group of small passerine birds in the finch family Fringillidae which have characteristic red markings on their heads. They are very closely related, and taxonomically could be considered as any thing from one to five species. Recent studies tend to support three species.
They are primarily seed-eaters, and often feed acrobatically like a tit; their diet may include some insects in summer. They have a dry reeling song and a metallic call. They lay 4-7 eggs in a nest in a tree or, in the case of Arctic Redpoll, a large bush. They can form large flocks outside the breeding season, sometimes mixed with other finches.
Location Taken: Gore, Southland, New Zealand.
Panasonic Lumix Camera Model DMC-FZ35 29 Aug 2010. Lying on my belly with my camera pointed through the sliding doors was the method used to get this capture.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
