Mum Said Always Have A Good Breakfast!! - Waxeye NZ by 


Please view large, thank you..
A closer look at the little waxeyes/Silvereyes/Whiteeyes enjoying the mixture of oats and sugar water. A supplementary treat given to them when it is really cold or the ground is covered in snow. They love it and hopefully it will keep their energy levels up till the snow melts. We had another dump of snow during the night, the garden looked magical. It appears to be clearing up and the beauty has turned into muddy slush…Another day of ensuring the little feathered fellows have enough to eat. I went for a walk and did not see many birds out and about as I usually do, I am convinced that all the neighbourhood birds are in our garden, I have never seen as many as there were yesterday and today. It is wonderful and they have given me so much pleasure, they are a joy to watch and I am happy they have food to eat…

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.

    Great photo Andrea. I call it a feeding frenzy too, as we put out nuts, seed and nectar water also fruit. I did try sweet porridge this morning because of the snow but think my container on the potting table wasn’t trusted, as it is new and lower than the other food. Where do you put yours? Delightful photos. Also had a number of ducks round, heard a grey warbler too. Hope you are keeping warm? ~ Anni xox

    I had a small greenhouse that I purchased from the warehouse, it took a severe beating from the weather, so I used the uprights and built a long tall frame with two platforms high off the ground. I place the food on there for them in a tray. We have loads of neighbourhood cats so I did not want the birds to be easy pickings for them. I too saw a grey wabler today, but he was a little shy. Snow is melting now, so all should be back to normal tomorrow. Thanks for sharing your story.
