Jeez Redbaiter…. you really are a miserable bastard, aren’t you? Your house must be a real fun place to live….
No surprises you don’t appreciate Friday Photos – to do so requires a sense of empathy for the environment / nature / wildlife etc, plus a sense of recognition that someone (Chthoniid) has the necessary skills to not only capture a moment but also a willingness to share it with us.
But thanks for proving once and for all that you’re a complete stalk.
Those pesky critters were most unpopular back on the farm – not sure why – but everyone seemed to dislike them!!
Try retirement, Chthoniid. Often not sure what day of the week it is. Thank goodness for 7 day supermarkets.
Do you have a pic of a Fernbird by any chance?
Thanks- yeah, they’re a bird that can pack in a lot of personality.
I’ll concede I prefer them in Australia to NZ.
I’ve got some fond memories of spotting fernbirds but alas, not even a record shot of one. The combination of being secretive birds in wetland habitats is a bit of a challenge.
I remember seeing flocks of these flying around on a farm that I was working on up the Whangaehu Valley near Wanganui one summer. Like @fredinthegrass says – they were not looked upon fondly for some reason….
