    Was muttering to myself, wondering why I carry a camera around in the bush, seeing nothing to photograph when this ruru swooped over me down the track. Stepped around a tree and there he was, sitting on a branch above the track. Stayed while I took 20 odd photos. Made my day. This was about midday.

    this trip i left the camera to save weight and half way in to my camp a largish bird swooped thru the tussock and disappeared into a hollow then landed on an old post,,a dark bird but small in stature so my guess is it was a young male kestrel,,he had a wee bird in his talons and was ripping the feathers off even as he watched me walk past at around 6 paces,must of been a while since his last meal

    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

    You didn't have anything to do with a Pukeko control project on a certain Hauraki Gulf island a few years ago perchance???

    A new species of magpie?... maybe not. A Google search on 'bird standing on one leg' is fairly common in the bird world.
