    I was out at Orokanui Ecosanctuary today, and while most things were too under the canopy for good photos (the kaka) or not sitting still (the fernbird) I did get this nice shot of a Grey Warbler

    Hang on. I recognise that dissolute insouciance, didn't he used to play guitar in Hello Sailor or summoneorudder like that?

    Indeed - you can read the settings on her lens, looking straight back into yours!

    I knew it had the wrong shaped head to be a shag, and looking at the zoomed in picture later, I realise I was seeing an Australasian Crested Grebe in Queenstown Bay.

    Nice to see you adding to this still. Keep 'em coming.

    I posted gannets on the summer thread, but here's another in flight shot.

    Ka nui te pai!
    Note how it is using one wing as a brace against the branch-
    Some of our birdlife is basically 4-footed-

  • David Hood,

    I'd actually be focusing the camera in on a bellbird that had been on the branch, when the Tui swooped down with everything extended and chased the bellbird off, so I took the shot. I said to my daughter "if that is in focus it is going to be a great picture"- I didn't know at the time if I had gotten the Tui all stretched out in the few moments before it moved again.

    Anyone want to make a strong opinion on this one (I _think_ it is a young Brown Creeper, Pipipi, but am really not sure)

    I'd agree with you, and about not being absolutely sure too, without the additional matters of being in a small flock, calls etc. I'm not familiar with sub-adults up close, and haven't seen any for a while (they being absent from the North Island and all).
