Silvereye in the Feijoas
21 November 2014
Right outside my office window at home is a feijoa tree (which we mistook for a pohutukawa when we moved in years ago… until we noticed feijoas on the ground underneath it), and the little wax eyes (or silvereyes, whatever you prefer) love the flowers. There is a small group that mob it each afternoon, including some fledglings constantly calling for food from their parents. While I missed any reasonable shots of the feeding process because I’m just too slow, I did manage to get this guy. Finally.
