New Zealand Wood Pigeon

This New Zealand Wood Pigeon (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae, kereru) had found a comfortable resting place in the forked branches of a kanuka tree next to our deck, where it stayed for quite some time.

Thanks to Mrs H for alerting me to it.


  1. Well done, Mrs H!

  3. Beautiful colouring on the bird. It looks like it’s about ready for a nap!
