Who'll Stop the Rain From Falling Down On Us? - Silvereyes-NZ by 


Two little Silvereyes getting wet in the rain trying to keep their energy levels up on apple. They keep eating, rain or shine, and today was rain, wind, hail, sleet and a little snow. We had a bit of everything, the temperatures have not gone much above 3 degrees today. We have been very fortunate up till now with warm weather in the middle of winter, but now winter has finally arrived with an icy blast….
The Silvereye is a small bird with a conspicuous ring of white feathers around the eye, and belongs to a group of birds known as white-eyes. The Silvereye shows interesting plumage variations across its range. The grey back and olive-green head and wings are found in birds through the east, while western birds have a uniformly olive-green back. Breeding birds of the east coast have yellow throats, pale buff flanks (side of the belly) and white on the undertail. Tasmanian birds have grey throats, chestnut flanks and yellow on the undertail. To complicate this, the birds in the east have regular migrations within Australia and may replace each other in their different areas for parts of the year. Birds in Western Australia have yellowish olive, rather than grey, backs.

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.
