  1. Wonderful shots of the Tui. We don't have flax at home so seldom see them here.

  2. From what I can see in your photos they look very similar to the Wattle Birds that we have here in Tasmania. Hope you have a great weekend - Tony

  7. Tui a pretty name for that bird in the flax flower. We don't have Tuis and flax in our country, but I remember the huge patches of flax when we were in New Zealand, they were not yet flowering at that time.
