These are some colourful birds of New Zealand. I am a Newbie of Guru shots and these were my entries.
Except the last one the New Zealand Saddleback on Tiritiri Island.
When you photograph birds it can be either like a cat chasing a mouse or else, you can ask a bird nicely for permission to take it’s photo. I often say, “Thank You!” to the bird later on.
A bird can tell your mood when you approach it. It’s survival depends on it’s instincts and they also know if you care for them. I know that because when I have rescued sick birds around my house, they go up to the door so that I can see them to take them into bird rescue.
To go to bird rescue in GreenBay is a long drive but I trust Lyn Mac Donald the woman in charge to care for the bird well. She gives her all, she doesn’t have time off and has a team of volunteers to work for her. She has been made a Dame for her dedication for sick birds.
Bird Rescue is a worthwhile cause to support.
