Look at the feet on this weka chick! Western weka (Gallirallus australis australis) breed from August to February and will lay up to four clutches of 2-4 eggs. This was the only chick with the parents, so it could be it’s the only egg that survived the incubation period, or maybe the only chick that hasn’t been predated. Weka nest on the ground, with the male and female sharing incubation. Once the chicks are hatched, they stay with the parents for a couple of months and will typically start breeding in the following breeding season.

Baby weka.  What a cute bundle of fluff.  With low predator numbers in the park, this guy's chance of survival is high.  Great to see thriving wildlife in the #abeltasman.  #abeltasmanbirdsongtrust #projectjanszoon #nature #nzbirds #weka #cheeky #fluffy

Afgelopen weekend in @vogelparkavifauna geweest. Een schetsje gemaakt in de tram die toch wel een beetje daar op gebaseerd is denk ik. Een soort #kiwibird al heb k m niet zo goed kunnen zien. We zaten achteraan op de tribune.. Dus meer zoals ik m me voorstel .

Bellbird - Korimako

Most New Zealanders can easily recognise the Bellbird by its beautiful song, which Captain Cook described as sounding ‘like small bells exquisitely tuned’. #bellbird #nznative #newzealand .

Two beautiful Keruru visit every day to gorge on the laburnum outside my bedroom window! They pretty much decimate the tree each year when it comes into leaf but how can you be mad I love watching them and they have just been crowned New Zealand's Bird of the Year!

Sorry I've been MIA the past week or so! I picked up my lovely man from the airport on Friday after being apart for 6 months 😯❤️ As you can imagine I haven't really felt like doing much work 😂...so here's a throwback to my Tui artwork 'Flying Free'! I'll be back in the real world as of tomorrow, and it's going to be a busy week... So look out! 💃

Rifleman is New Zealand's smallest bird that is one of only two surviving species within the ancient endemic New Zealand wren family.
This particular rifleman family in @tiritirimatangiisland is much more special as it's one of the only 3 north island rifleman population. The other two North Island rifleman population are on Kaimai Forest Park (Warawara Forest in Northland), and on Little Barrier
Island.

Captain James Cook first introduced the domestic sheep (Ovis aries) to New Zealand in the 1770s, and it was about a hundred years later that sheep farming really took off. By the early 1980s, New Zealand’s sheep numbers were up to 70 million, which put the sheep:human ratio at about 23:1. These days, sheep numbers are down considerably, to about 30 million, and the ratio is now 6:1. This time of year, the hills around Motueka come alive with the bleating of lambs, especially as a lot of ewes have twins, or even triplets.

Swamp Harrier/Kahu. This bird seems to have a pretty regular routine and route looking for prey to harass over the reeds. Arrived from across the Tasman mid 1800s.

RIP our tent. This weekend we were joined at camp by 6 of these little vandals. 
Their favorite past times include putting their beaks through tent flys, severing guy ropes, and stealing wet gross socks. .

As I was photographing this little toutouwai at the Zealandia Ecosanctuary a few weeks ago, another photographer with a monstrous, camo-clad lens was shuffling backwards. His lens, presumably designed for photographing lions and grizzlies and League players and other dangerous animals, wouldn't focus close enough. .

"The bird watcher". Our favourite gentleman ornithologist is in his element, surrounded by binoculars and bird books and with an interesting specimen! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This TinyArt piece, featuring a curious kākā parrot, has a bronzed mat and is framed with a gorgeous antiqued distressed wooden frame. The print is 11cm square and the outer frame is 17.5cm wide, just perfect for a study desk. Just $110 with free shipping in NZ. (I must admit, out of all the TinyArt pieces I've made lately, this is my favourite - so tempted to keep him!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Find out more about my TinyArt collaboration with @edgesworkshop at www.artbyjlm.com/tinyart (or use the link in my bio). 10% of my proceeds go to support @visit_zealandia ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
