Artist's Description

Another shot of these cute little birds with the sun bouncing off beautiful feathers. The wax-eye is another cute little bird which lives in what New Zealanders commonly refer to as “the bush”. The wax-eye is also known as the white-eye or silver-eye, and unlike the fantail it eats berries and nectar, which it laps up with a brush-tipped tongue.
The wax-eye is a very recent arrival in New Zealand, in fact it’s thought that it was self-introduced in the mid 1800s from Australia, perhaps when a flock of them was blown across the Tasman Sea by a storm.
