Wax-eye City

Two wax-eyes with lard, corrugated iron, and mudflats

Three wax-eyes with porridge bowl


also known as wax-eye, white eye, and silvereye,

is a small NZ bird. Along with the tui and the bellbird, it loves to drink the winter gift of sugar water.

Tauhou also likes cooked rolled oats. I learnt about this from a marvellous recipe book called TEA FOR THE TUI.
