Yes another one .......
I never tire of watching and recording these delightful birds.
Being a ground nester they are extremely vulnerable to predation and respond well to predator control....
This, possibly the same bird as the previous one, was photographed perhaps ten minuets before yet look at the change in colour temp. It is always a concern to me.
I love working toward the lower end of the Kelvin scale so its usually early mornings and late evenings for me and lands me in a whole heap of trouble with meal times.....LOL
Fernies" prefer to run than fly which does nothing to help their survival potential with predators.
Like mice they run in and out of hiding and present a challenging subject for the photographer.
So sneaky ,Ive spoken to people that have the birds on their property yet they have never seen them...Funny birds.
