    The majestic colour, the neck netting, and that "wattle’ ….
    What can I say….. Bloody Brilliant.

  • Thank you so much Larry – I was still editing this when I realised I hadn’t put a title or info on it. Also, I hadn’t marked it ’ private !’ Very pleased you like it and look forward to introducing you to them !

    Gosh Roy this is a brilliant capture, haven’t seen this bird before.

  • Many thanks Malcolm – apart from the Kiwi he is one of our most well know natives and a beautiful song-bird. They have two voice boxes – if you google ’ Tui’s song ’ there are quite a few video’s around.
