Huia : "HETERALOCHA ACUTIROSTRIS"
Subject matter at the Canterbury Museum.
Two beautiful Huia birds pulled from their dark and cool preserving cabinet, exposed under the sterile lamp in a curator's office.
I could have been there forever with these two historical specimens. The "young male" huia was so elegant and fluid, while the adult female had much more spring & ferocity to her.
There is something about my old Sigma Macro lens and how it allows atmospheric light & colour into the image.
Truly loved this experience 🙏

Today a tui came to visit... #birdsofaotearoa #nzbirds

Time for me to say goodbye to (and you to buy 😉) New Zealand’s beautiful birds! 🇳🇿 Reflecting on all the drawing I’ve done here and pleased to be able to share it on Instagram (thanks again for all your support) and on red bubble (link in bio) ❤️ .

After a year of trying, I’ve finally managed to get a good photo of a tīeke (saddleback!) These birds are awesome, with their loud call that kinda sounds like they’re laughing. It almost felt like they actually were laughing at me every time I took a blurry photo of them 🙄 Tīeke can be found on offshore sanctuary islands and five mainland sanctuaries in NZ 🌿

Another rowdy tūī in that same tree - that’s sadly starting to loose all its flowers. #tui #nzbirds

For young and old.
This fanstatic photo was taken by Malcolm Pullman and entered into our Kiwi Awards competition. Seeing a kiwi in real life brings a special kind of smile to your face no matter who you are. #Kiwi #KiwiAwards #Aotearoa #nzbirds #Wildlife #kiwiconservation #nativenewzealandbirds #awesomepics #birdwatching #endangeredSpecies #Kiwisforkiwi #birdsofinstagram #Whangarei #KiwiCoast #BackyardKiwi #Puttingsmilesondials #foryoungandold

SIPO / Tōrea
Haematopus finschi
Endemic. At Risk.
In spring, a large percentage of the SI Pied Oystercatcher population moves to the inland parts of the South Island - rivers and farms - to breed.

Our beautiful New Zealand native Tūī 📷@jt_wildlife 🍃

Introductions between Frickleton and Manukura have been going well, with visitors being treated to the amazing calls coming from both! Here’s hoping to a positive friendship!
