Natural Pollen Highlights! - Bellbird - Southland by 


The bellbirds are back in the garden and at first when is spotted this beauty a few days ago I was not sure what type of bird it was. It was the orange/red tinge of colour on his head that had me fooled. I was so excited I thought that I had a new type of bird visiting my garden. Having done some research, it is indeed a bellbrid, and I believe that the red/orange on the top of his head is caused by pollen. Something I learned today.
The bellbird is well known, but not often seen by most people, though it’s said to be relatively more common in the South Island. The red eye on this individual indicates that it is male.
As the name suggests, their song sounds rather like the ringing of small bells, and it was a major contributor to the dawn chorus of bird song which filled the country each morning when Europeans first arrived. Many species of birds became extinct in the following years, and it seemed as if the bellbird might head in the same direction, but thankfully it’s been able to pull itself back from the brink.

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.
