Waxeye / Tauhou by sandradavies

Waxeye / Tauhou

Working outside in the garden I found this little bird trapped inside, I snapped him before setting him free.

The wax eye has a Maori name, tauhou meaning stranger, an arrival from Australia around 1832. He loves to eat spiders and fruit besides nectar and insects and is welcome in my garden but not inside the house.
Lovely shot, a pretty bird.

He was probably so confused as to why he couldn't just fly into the open. Great you were there to take his picture and set him free.
