Back in September I wrote about a very short visit that I had to Bushy Park while attending the PSNZ Central Regional Convention.  I said at the time I was going back and I did!  My husband and I have just returned home after spending two nights at the Bushy Park Homestead and two days wandering around the bush in search of birds.  Not that you need to search, there are birds everywhere!  I don’t think I have ever seen so many saddlebacks (tieke) in one place before.  I am extremely happy with these images from the weekend.

      That is a hihi or stitchback. The one in the image is a male, the females have somewhat duller colouring 🙂
