Santa delivered the present I asked him for although it could have had a lot to do with the fact that I mentioned to Doug that I would like a new bird bath to replace my old one that had seen better days.
The birds have been a bit slow to bathe in it although they do use it to drink from.
Yesterday I was thrilled to see a Kereru or Native Pigeon drinking from it.
I was indoors and the first hurried photo was on normal lens but the second one used the zoom. You will need to enlarge the photos to see the kereru.
