Missed November Posting – Bird behaviour

NZ Birding – Waxeye dunking insect

30 Oct 2017

Observed an interesting behaviour this morning. We hang jars of raw sugar water under our eves for the waxeyes. They often come in for a drink. This morning I noticed one with what looked like a moth in its mouth, come in, dunk the moth in the sugar water, and fly off again. I suspect it is feeding chicks sugar coated insects.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
