Kereru NZ Native Wood Pigeon

NZ Wood Pigeon at Wharepuke in Kerikeri

The Kereru, the NZ Native Wood Pigeons are very passive here in our gardens at Wharepuke in Kerikeri. Its amazing how close you can get to these wild birds. Puffed up on a cold day after eating lots of new Mulberry leaves.

We got off lightly here at Wharepuke in Kerikeri Northland. A beautiful Fishtail Palm came down, a few big branches and lots of leaf litter, and the new driveway washed away but nothing compared to many who are still doing the big cleanup or waiting for the waters to recede.

A stunning sunrise as the storm passed then blue skies and sunshine.

Nature recovering.
