These are a couple of shots of Shakespear Regional Park that I took on an evening walk recently. I was out there again this afternoon for an event and to fill in time I followed a couple of whiteheads (Mohua albicilla) that we released into the park last year. As I got closer I saw that one of the two didn’t have identification leg bands that all the released birds were given, meaning this was the first whitehead I’ve seen born (hatched?) in the park. Totally expected but still exciting.
P.S. Re yesterday’s blog, a song thrush practically landed on me in the lounge today. Great close-up birding.
