[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This young Tui has visited my garden today feeding on brown sugar and water. He visited many times, and wasn't the slightest bit concerned when I was on my back lawn tidying the garden. His song was not as sweet as the older Tui. He had a most dreadful screech and very little beautiful song that we usually associate with the Tui. Every time he was heading to the feeder, he announced his visit by sitting in the tree above the feeder and letting out a loud screech.

Hello Pam,
An excellent capture of this Tui.
The colours seen on its plumage are so beautiful, so delicate and standing out pretty well.
I like the wide composition and all the details got.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hello Pam!

Very nice portrait of Tui. Perfectly exposured with different shades of colours very well visible on its plumage. Good eye contact and pose, too.

Hello Pam,
The colours in the feathers of this Tui are marvelous. Evenso the sharpness. Is that a piece of plastic in front of the bird?
The composition, eye-contact and POV are excellent.

Hi Pa,
A nice shot of this little screecher.
Are the juveniles always much more brown than adults? I should know really, but I don't.
