Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Words and a picture from Louise Thomas.
"As a small city slicker, I don't see swamp harriers/kāhu (Circus approximans) that often (actually, I probably don't see them that often as we have falcons that live around here - the city raptor niche slot is full). We rumbled this one a couple of weekends ago feeding on some roadkill (as they do) on the gravel road to Boggy Pond in the Wairarapa. He was reluctant to go too far from his dinner, so I clicked a few shots as we walked past. Bird #58 in 2022."

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week a couple of pictures from Rosa Marie in Stokes Valley.
"Too wet and horrible to go a wondering this afternoon, but still managed to stalk the local birdlife from behind the washing line and get a few shots here and there as they feasted on the seed that I had thrown on the lawn. The cats however kept scaring them away."

Does anyone know a good plumber for a small job? I need an outside tap shifted and another one connected.
