Californian Quail Chicks in our garden and Tui Dawn Chorus

Californian Quail Chicks in our garden, Life is tough for these little fellows. They struggle through the tall grass wilderness but manage to survive in a predator free area like ours but a days rain will wipe them out.They just love the sun and to sunbathe. Watch the video.

Our Tui Dawn chorus is taking over. We can ear them all over the valley.

Matata in our garden

This Matata has nested in our garden. They do not like us near and let us know that with agitated calling and clicking. They are just going to have to learn to live with us. There are so many in our wetland it seems they have started to move out. We have had them in the garden and about the house for the last couple of years.

Grey Warblers nest

The chicks have fledged. It is a real work of art with its little shade over the entrance
