During the last week or so I've noticed two juvenile korimako (bellbird, Anthornis melanura) frequenting the harakeke (New Zealand flax) and other shrubs and trees along the driveway. This morning I made a point of taking the camera with me when I walked to the letterbox and, sure enough, the two youngsters and an adult appeared. This was the best of the photographs. The yellow on the forehead is pollen from the harakeke; the yellow at the base of the bill is an unequivocal indicator that this little bird isn't long out of the nest.
