Pukeko

It came running down the slope at full speed, crossing the path, disappearing in the shrubbery by the edge of the lake, where it got a hero’s welcome. The pukeko (swamphen, porphyrio porphyrio) had found a morsel and delivered it to a couple of youngsters sheltering in the thicket. Western Springs.
