Studies the slight movement from my position with caution.
I often wonder what they think of us.
We have a glowing regard for our presence on this earth and all evolves around us, we do make concessions for the other inhabitants but with reservations and due consideration to how it effects us.
I can only surmise what they think if indeed, we can credit them with so called rational and balanced thinking after all they are only animals.......While we are....

My old favourite, possibly I have nearly 500 images of these wonderful little birds.
They can be largely displaced by their larger cousins the Weka who are known for their aggressive attitude to other competition..
Living beside these timid birds Ive seen the sharp decline over the last four years as Weka have arrived and proliferated.

Alway active yet curious, little denizen of the fern , reeds and grasses of its habitat.
Their tail as you can sea looks more like Kiwi feathers than a bird of this nature..a true gem.
I have them within a stones throw of our home which is such h a treat.
Quite a high ISO so its a little grainy..

Last image for 2022.
Timid and rarely photographed well.
One will need to stay positioned over daybreak, not moving. Resist the bite of insects, aching limbs and other vagaries that pester bird photographers just to see one let alone record it on your card.
But what a thrill when you do and share it with others..
Declining due to predation, habitat destruction and modification.
There seems to be a mad desire among powers that be, to build through every bit of swamp, a walkway, so runners, cyclists some with unleashed dogs can help reduce these birds by keeping them under stress continually.
Of course they will argue against this but as most of them know little about birds except that which they have gleaned from a text book or simply do not care.

Denizen of the saltwater estuary and Mangroves mostly, though lives in various habitats as its fate decides.
The young, small black furred little bundles are extremely vulnerable to a host of predators and mans thoughtlessness or indifference.
