Here are some of the common garden birds that I catch with handphone during my recent visit to New Zealand North Island.
on the opposite side river of the bank I saw a black bird, to far for my handphone camera
I search and found the name. download this from Wikipedia – Eurasian blackbird, pic by Juan Emilio
I encountered a Bird of Prey (possibly a Swamp Harrier) eating a road kill while driving a plantation road. The bird flew away when approached, and I didn’t have any chance to take a photo.
The bird of prey from the website Young Birders New Zealand, matching the bird that I saw that day..
I got a permission to use the bird photo here, in my not for profit blog from Mr. George Hobson, Coordinator of the Young Birders New Zealand. TQ.
