Kereru / NZ Wood Pigeon
Yes... It's the big bird with the very small head(!), and I know you've seen a couple of Kereru recently! But: I was absolutely amazed at how many of these big birds were roosting in the Kaitoki Forest Park; there were at least six in one large tree, and virtually one in just about every tree that I walked beneath...
How could I not photograph these birds again...?!?
It's official... New Zealand moves to Level One "Lock-Down" tonight at 11:59... It's sort of hard to believe! With Level One, Life will return to (almost) Normal. Our Borders will remain closed, so Air NZ will continue to struggle, as will our Tourist industry, but hotels, cafes, restaurants and office work places will open again as per normal... We've had 17 days with no new Covid cases; we pray that this will continue to be the case...!!!
Take care, keep smiling, and stay well Folks, and thanks so much for visiting my Site, and for taking the time and trouble to leave a Comment. It's always nice to hear from you...!
