Mt Albert 21 & 22 March - All Silvereyes

The last couple of mornings I have attempted to catch some of the Silvereyes that feed first thing in the morning at the fennel patch on Mt Albert.
The sun about to appear over the Rimutaka Ranges

 On Thursday morning I caught 20 new and 1 recapture, this morning 11 new and 2 recaps. All the recaps were recently banded. All birds were Silvereye with no bycatch.
One bird was moulting atypically, still growing P3,8 & 9  with the others  full length.
