    As past attempts to establish the great tit (parus major) in NZ appear to have failed you should be cool.

    Lovely shot. :-)

    Funnily enough that wasn't the only chook there that could have been in Labyrinth.

    Crimson rosellas.
    They have the most un-parrotlike call, like a little silver bell.
    Magical critters, lovely atmospheric shot, you can almost smell the eucalypt.

    Right, instead of resting like I should, after an exhausting weekend with a 350km round trip thrown in, I instead trawled through my external HD in my own version of photographic competition of the year. You want flowers? I have flowers, although I have no idea, apart from the roses, what any of them are. These particular ones I find poignant.

    And this one was taken at the zoo in 2009, and must surely be a fluke. I was fairly convinced initially that it was someone else's but no, apparently, when I want to be, I'm quite good at this photography lark.

    And because it's a rainy Sunday, and it's one of my missing Dad days, this photo I took a couple of years after he died because I was feeling melancholy, and this meant something to me at the time.

  • Islander, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    One turned up in Big O 12 years ago, in the ngaio tree by my back door, and it was the call that alerted me- I'd never heard anything like it. We got all excited* (after 2 of us identified
    it- one from Oz experience, and one from bird-ref books.) There had been blown-accross settlers before (kotuku & cattle egrets & spur-winged plovers to mention
    just 3.)
    But no: turned out one of the neighbours had a secret aviary...

    *The pair of resident tui gave it heaps, and only stopped when the aviary-owner
    lured it back into a travelling cage.

    These flowers are dead and gone too. :)
    I should add, they did brighten up our building site, no matter how much they got in the way.

  • Geoff Lealand,

    Bird calls! For the past three days we gave heard a chiming call, around about a minute apart, from an unsighted bird high up in our cedar. Not a bellbird nor a tui but I wondered if it might be a shining cuckoo. Could it be, this far north (Waikato')? It sounds forlorn.
    Photos? I could post lots of old cinemas from around NZ.

    That shot looks like the main hothouse. Like most of the gardens it's open and pretty much unscathed.
