Caption: This tree in Cornwall Park had about a dozen tui feeding in it. There must have been plenty of nectar in the flowers.

I see that determination requires balance sometimes... You deserve the blue for this one.

Thank you Susan and Doug. Yes spring is well advanced. However, looking outside our dining room window at present you would be forgiven for thinking winter had arrived : the ground is white with plum blossom petals. :-)

Helen, Liz, Donna, Kat and Wanda - thank you. Wiki gives a good description of the tui, thanks for mentioning it Kat. In there it mentions that the English name is "Parson Bird" because of the white tuft of feathers at its throat. We never hear it referred to by that name here. They are not very common in our neighbourhood and, whenever we hear one there is always a rush to go out and see if we can see it. So I was really pleased to see so many in the park.

Great shot, John! I love the little white
feathers curving forward from being upside down
and the touch of pale blue on the wings and tail.
What an interesting bird! I had to look him up
on Wikipedia to see what he looked like upright.
They are fascinating..bigger than I thought, and
Wiki said they can imitate other birds and even
some human speech, like a parrot. Cool!
Congratulations on your new Blue!
