This week we feature a picture of a starling by Louise Thomas.
"The variety of plumage at the moment on young birds as they transition into their adult feathers is amazing. I think a few years ago I would have thought of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) as a dozen different species if I thought of them at all. Many of the new generation still have their brown heads, but are developing their star-spangled chest feathers. Mature feathers coming in on their backs are beautiful, with pale brown borders and the middles an iridescent green in the sunlight. Nature is an artist."
There will be NO Community weekly market held in the Waikanae Town Centre (Mahara Place) between 9.30am and 12.00pm this Tuesday.
In saying that however the Honey Man and the Avocado folk will be there as usual so please support them!!
For your info between May and September the market will be happening on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday's only.
