Two little Tauhou or Silvereye turned up on the flax this morning.

The silvereye colonised New Zealand from Australia in the 1850s … Length: 12 cm, Weight: 13 grams.

Such cute wee birds! I’m so glad they visit our garden. Planting flax bushes near the front door was smart.

Two tiny birds with white rings round the eyes, on a flax spear. Another view: Two tiny birds with white rings round the eyes, on a flax spear.
