And the piwakawaka is complete. More of a realistic version than my earlier stylised fantail. Which do you prefer?

Thanks again @snapping_wild for the reference pic!

And the packaging continues. Online orders and galleries have kept me busy this weekend. Still found time to play with the family and make 200 chocolate truffles 😆

Coming to the end of a long year and feeling tired and out of sorts - but only a few days to go before going on leave and hopefully having a bit more time for some artful pursuits. This picture was one of the first photo-art pieces I ever made and one of the first where I knew I'd finally found a creative outlet that worked for me. As such it's still a personal favourite 😊. Titled "Awaiting the dawn - kāruhiruhi"

‘North Island Saddleback’ in New Zealand 🌴 This beautiful mom to be was keeping busy making her nest with all the softest forest nick-nacks she could find. A successful conservation effort has brought these NZ endemics back from devastating population collapse. 👍

A male korimako/bellbird. The orange feathering on his forehead is pollen that collects from feeding on nectar.

I appreciate this isn't an especially great picture but it was an absolute privilege to spy this little ball of fluff at @visit_zealandia this afternoon. The #takahē area has been closed off to let the parents and hatch and raise the chick so only some very occasional glimpses available from behind gates. 
For those that don't know Takahē were once thought to be extinct before being rediscovered in 1948. There are still less than 400 of the species in existence.

The kererū (NZ wood pigeon) is one of my favourite birds... They have such a fat body you can hear their wings straining to keep them in the air when they fly! So naturally I like this painting of one too ❤️👌

If I won the #nophoneforayear #contest, I would spend my spare time reading books about our endemic flora and fauna, and then getting out to photograph them! What would you do?!

This is a pair of Canadian Geese (Branta Canadensis) I encountered on Matiu Somes Island recently.
BIRD FACT: Canadian Geese used to enjoy free movement from Canada into the US and down as far as Mexico under the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA. This allowed them to work different jobs during different seasons and greatly benefited all three economies. Earlier this year, a new agreement came into force, the United States Mexico Canada Agreement or USMCA – great acronym…Under this agreement, their movement is significantly more limited and their ability to work in the United States have been rescinded. This has led to a mass migration of highly skilled and wonderfully polite Canadian Geese to many other parts of the world, including New Zealand.

Tui fledgling being fed #tuinz #nzbirds
Flax are in full flower - so great for our native birds. #dunnerstunner #nznative #nzbirds
I feel like I'm being watched...by this very cute roundboi is a riroriro (or grey warbler - Gerygone igata). It was watching me walking around a track above Lowry Bay recently. 
BIRD FACT: The riroriro are tied with the titipounamu for Aotearoa’s smallest bird and have been known to feed titipounamu in order to increase their size to claim the mantle of smallest bird. Thus far, this strategy has not worked for the riroriro but has resulted in happier titipounamu who are reportedly ‘stoked’ at the free food.

🌅 5am summertime is a beautiful time of day. One of my favourites. On the other hand a couple more hours sleep would've been nice 🤷. I'm keeping a tiny book of garden ideas, because when I make lists I don't revisit them, but sketchbooks I do. This morning I'm thinking about how to attract native burds to me new garden (I don't live there yet but have set up a separate insta about it, @woodside_nz if you like home-related content). #5am #earlybird #garden #sketchbook #native #ruru #korimako #silvereye #kereru #piwakawaka #nzgardens #nzbirds #journal #whatdoyoueat

Korimako Sounds of Summer
Finished this sweet pea today. She’s a NZ Bellbird and I just love her olive grey plumage. 
Making the switch to oils with this one, I do love the lushness they give. And yes the drip is intentional! Lol 
Anyways thanks for looking and if anyone is interested she is looking for a new home. Would make a lovely Christmas present! Message me for price. 
Measures 61cm x 46cm on stretched canvas.  #nzbirds #newzealand #newzealandartist #newzealandart
