    Black Fantails

    We have had our first black-variant fantail here. I've seen it several times in the garden over the past month and will try and get a photo or two to post here if it will just stay still long enough. Apparently it is rare to find them in the North Island, and while less so in the South, they still make up only 4% of the population.

    Has anyone else come across any Black Fantails in the lower North Island, and if so, any pics please ?

    Cool.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I didn't know there were variants, as an avid bird watcher and amateur photographer phone cam and trail cams I will keep my eyes peeled now and keep you posted @Puffin.

    Ruru indoors

    My nephew & partner found the following on their return home — presumably brought in by their cat in their absence. It flew around the house fine on its way to being flushed back outside, and appeared unharmed by the whole ordeal.

    Be careful where you roost seems to be the lesson here.

    Got a very startled look about it for one of those - they normally look like they own the entire shebang and the world revolves about them. Very cool birds to be fair, very cool.

    I saw these birds yesterday while doing a trap line at the Quarry – I thought they looked a bit special – a duck hunter friend tells me they are a good example of Grey Ducks with very little sign of Mallard hybridization
    Heavy rain flushes out unusual sediments from the old Quarry and the water turns almost white for a few days.
