Birding/ Bird watching at Auckland Domain, Auckland, New Zealand

Birding/ Bird watching at Auckland Domain, New Zealand

Wednesday 1st of November 2017 and the taxi driver dropped me at the war memorial museum. I had had my lunch at Chargrill Kebabs & Burgers. And the food had been as good as the first time I was eating at Chargrill Kebabs & Burgers. So if you ever come to Auckland, you know where to go if you want to have good Persian food. Or just a pot of tea and a Baklava or two.

Chargrill Kebabs & Burgers

Persians making food. BOOM!!!! There goes my diet!

If they would have upgraded the seating area this would have been 5 stars. Excellent food.

-Tea from a tea pot
-Big portions
-The biggest Baklava I have ever seen
-Friendly staff

And yes, the food was very very good


I went to look for the pine trees and I passed a tree with a juvenile Common Blackbird. I had a picture before I continued out on the lawn to try to get some pictures of three Common Starlings eating on the lawn. DARN! The Common Starling is a very shy bird and the birds disappeared as soon as they saw me moving.

I chased them for a while and I never managed to get any good pictures of the Common Starling. I walked down towards the pond where I spotted another few juvenile Common Blackbirds that was still feed by the parents. I saw two New Zealand Pigeons on my way to the Duck Pond.

I walked around the Duck Pond, a few Silvereyes but no pictures. Back at the bathroom and I booked a UBER car. While waiting I took a few pictures of a Common Myna and a juvenile Song Thrush and a juvenile Blackbird.

My car arrived and we left Auckland Domain, a very nice place. I could easily have spent a few hours, but it was getting darker. So I asked the UBER car to take me to the mini mart close to the hotel. There are no Pepsi MAX in Singapore, well, they are not easy to find. So I will buy a few here and bring with me to Singapore. So that means a new MAX adventure for Tompa

Jo du Masken, då e d dags igen

I have booked a taxi to come pick me up at 9 thirty and you will just have to click HERE to find out if the taxi makes it in time. And if I make it to Singapore.
