Friday Foto

Spring has arrived Downunder…

The little birds drinking from my kniphofia/red hot pokers are called Waxeyes or Silvereyes.  They’re a bit smaller than sparrows and tend to travel in groups.  They’re one of my favourite birds – quite confident and cheeky.  And, of course, their feathers are beautiful shades of green.

  1. I certainly hope yours do well. They do make a lovely splash of colour – BTW you can get yellow ones as well. And once they form a solid clump they can get really enthusiastic.

  2. We’ve got lots of waxeyes visiting our kowhai tree, at the moment there are about 10 there, and it’s not a big tree, but covered in flowers this year 🙂
