Piwakawaka - Fantail

By Leary  
Hi all,

This is an old shot from a year or 2 ago. Piwakawaka or Fantail is a small bird native to New Zealand. It has a characteristic chattery song, and falls out of the sky catching itself with its tail. so it looks like its all over the show. pretty friendly birds.

sadly didnt shoot in raw then

any comments are appreciated.

I saw lots of these birds on a holiday in New Zealand last year - you're right about them being friendly! Nice shot.
