A couple of locals taken up winter residence the garden this week. They seem to move down from the forest around the mountain when it gets colder, and hang out in town gardens and farmland.

First is a Waxeye.

And a fantail or Piwakawaka

These guys are infuriating to try and photograph as they never sit still. They are very tame and will fly within a few feet of you chasing insects you might disturb, and catching them on the wing. But next second they are 50 ft away  :D

Have Tui, Bellbirds and Kereru hanging around too, which are larger birds, but they are a bit more wary, so more of a challenge to get a good shot of.
