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.
The bottle brush bushes outside the kitchen window continue to bloom and attract the hungry Tuis.
They are very bossy birds and often chase any other birds out of the bush. However over the past few sunny days I have noticed the small Silvereyes (also known as Waxeyes) are visiting to feast on the nectar.
The Silvereyes dart about snatching a meal when they can and fleeing when a Tui lands to eat in the bush.
Once again the camera has come through for me and captured two photos of these welcome visitors enjoying some nectar.
