Well!!.. Somebody Ate It All!!.. Look At The Bowl, It's Empty!!! - Wax-Eye - NZ by 


These adorable little silvereyes/waxeyes are not always passive, they show their aggression by flapping their wings or standing up to one another. They spend ages chasing one another off the food, sometimes flying into the other birds to gain possession. The little video clip was taken in slow motion to show how they actually knock the other bird off the apple.
The pair above are having an argument over the oats and sugar water while the snow floats past them. Most of Southland woke to another white winter wonderland

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.
