We wandered around the park seeing the inevitable blackbirds and chaffinches:
|A chaffinch (not a blackbird)|
And we were just admiring some white-eyes when a tui came and landed on a branch right next to us. Naturally, he tried to get as much of the branch as possible between me and a good shot. The tuis in the Botanic Gardens are quite used to people, and didn't seem bothered as I tried to get a better angle.
