The miromiro welcomes me home


Today I finally felt well enough (and had the time) to take a gentle walk partway up the No. 1 Line track. The animals were pretty quiet, but after I’d been sitting quietly for a few minutes, this little miromiro (tomtit) turned up. It looked as if it had recently fledged, and it had almost no fear — a couple of times it came close to landing on the lens. I felt welcomed home.
