Birdlife at Pakowhai Park

Fantail

Good evening from a cool Saturday night in Hastings.

After a cold start the weather turned out rather warm and so to get a bit of photo therapy I headed out to find some autumn colours which I will show tomorrow.

I also found some bird life while I was out.  There were lots of fantails flying around enjoying the warm sunshine.  The only thing was that there were dogs running around so that just as I was focusing on the fantails a dog would start barking and the bird would fly off.  This was the best shot.

Then there were the usual sparrows.

stilt 1I found these stilts walking not far from the motorway. I really struggled with the zoom with these, trying to get the right depth of field.  These were the best of my photos and I had to heavily crop them as well.

Feather

Finally a feather to finish of this post.

  1. I really love this post – the shots are so clear and birds are beautiful – and well, the little feather was the softest touch to wrap things up with – 🙂
