And here the photos I took on a lovely sunny day as the Waxeyes (Maori name: Tauhou) worked their way amongst the brushes on the Bottle Brush bush, supping on nectar.
They are skittish, tiny birds but very pretty and very welcome in the garden. Thank goodness for the kitchen window!
So cute!! When I was a teenager, we lived in a house with a berry bush outside the kitchen window. The wax eyes would come right up to the window to eat the berries – such a treat to look at when washing the dishes!
Aren’t they sweet? The chores at the sink and bench are not as boring with these wee ones to watch.
Ta. They are quick movers!
