Whistle for the Choir

I went and sat in the aviary the other day and managed to get some photos of the canaries as they went about their day's.

This little baby was basking in the sunshine. I loved his Eisenstein appearance with the tuffs of baby fluff. After posing for a while he flew away to a higher location.

The birds seems rather curious about the strange person sitting on the floor. Many a fly by occurred, with some so close you could feel the air move by you.

Kiwiana Christmas

The Pōhutukawa is often referred to as the Kiwi Christmas tree. 
They usually begin to bloom in late November and by Christmas time they are covered in these beautiful flowers, which vary in intensity between plants. 
A lot of the birds seem to love them including many of our natives like the tui.
