Spring has definitely sprung and the tui (two-ee) birds are here.
They are fluttering around everywhere the sounds are incredible!

Bright yellow flowers in my post this week captured just in time before this week's frost.

...and fall/autumn has arrived to my corner of the world.

Happy Spring as we head into Fall. Spring and Fall are such a favorite. Not fan anymore of what comes after Fall. These old bones get cold too fast. I do miss the birds of Spring, and all their noise. More quiet here now. Have a great week.

Your photos of the trees are entrancing, though I could not identify them. Yes, the underground connections between them are vital for their survival. It is interesting how such varied organisms can develop such vital relationships, as is ours with the bacteria in our intestinal tracts.

I've never heard of tui birds. :) The photo that is centre-left is the best one! :)

Yvonne said...

Never heard of Tui birds, so looked up on youtube. Their feather arrangement is certainly different, and the singing sounds more like odd noises. Interesting.

Amy said...

Haven't seen many of those birds around up here, although we hear them, they must be quite high up in the trees.

Suzana said...

Lucky you, to do these beautiful shots!
Thank you for the linking!
Happy WW!

Sharon Wagner said...

I wish I could hear them. Birds and ocean waves are my favorite sounds.

Lydia C. Lee said...

Nice one. I find bird shots quite hard to do - and a lesson in patience.

Taken For Granted said...

I like your bird photos. These birds seem quite lively in your pictures.

Heidi R. said...

I don't know these birds, but other species that make loud noises!

The kowhai flowers are beautiful, love the sounds of the tui. We had a kowhai tree in the front yard in Tauranga, it was a mass of flowers in the spring and the tui visitied .

I love their long pointy beaks! It is fall here in the US and in North Dakota the leaves are changing. I just got a new camera and wish it was spring again so I could find more birds to photograph. I guess I will just have to migrate with them and head south!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They look a bit like crows but better, and I am going to have to Google Tuis because I really want to know what thy sound like! Thank you for hosting, as always.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The harbingers of spring here are robins. I will have to look up the sound Tuis make

Schwabenfrau said...

Yes, spring begins on the other side of the world. We are now only in autumn and soon winter.
A nice collage that you made here and bird sweat is always nice.
Greetings Eva

I love the sounds of spring...everything coming awake again.

Veronica Lee said...

I've never heard of tui birds!! I'd love to see and hear them in person.

Happy Wednesday, Betty!

Diana said...

Now I find out that this bird exists. ☺️ I like it very much! ❤️ I also read something about it (a few minutes back), after seeing your pictures. Very Interesting.
Happy WW!

Lea said...

A handsome bird, and very acrobatic too!
Have a great day!

Sandee said...

Spring is a magical time indeed. We are enjoying fall here and after our hot summer it's most welcome. I see you enjoy watching birds as we do.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

Beautiful birds! I would have loved to hear them.

Natasha said...

Aren't these Ravens/Crows? They are fairly common sighting in India

Thanks for hosting dearest Betty.

Love and cheer!

Love your photos Betty - I am extremely fond of Tuis on Kowhai trees.
I have a kowhai in full bloom in my garden, but with a feisty cat around (mine) the Tuis stay clear! Thankfully there are other trees in the neigbourhood and I do hear them, and enjoy them.
Stay safe
Blessings
