New Zealand Birds

KAKA

WEKA

PUKEKO

The pukeko is a common and colorful bird in New Zealand.  The kiwi, however, is nocturnal, and it is rare to catch a glimpse of one, except in wildlife parks.  We saw several in a controlled environment, but unfortunately were not allowed to take photos.

Great shots of unusual birds. Have you seen a Kea yet? The ones that can pull your car to pieces in the parking lot while you go hiking for a few hours.
