The bird returned to above the carport yesterday after a five-week absence, so it looks like I chose the right time to go looking for them. Thanks to Paul and Grahame for the ride, and to the cafe lady for pointing it out to us. A stunningly nice bird to be number 200 on my New Zealand list.

I think that excellent photo is already world famous in New Zealand...or facebook. Co worker at work mentioned it.
