Bird Eyes





... I remember reading once that a collective noun for parrots is 'a bravado of parrots' - a more common one is 'a pandemonium of parrots'. 
These two parrots at the Botanical Gardens veer more towards the bravado as they brave a Dunedin winter; perhaps they are waiting for warmer temperatures before causing any pandemonium.


gimlet-eyed, this grey (blue?) heron was having a real feast of something in the inlet's low-tide ...

Hey bro! Leave some for me.
