New Zealand Wood Pigeon (Kereru)
About This Image
This was a picture of a very obliging native New Zealand wood pigeon, or Kereru, sitting in one of it's favourite eating places, a Kowhai tree (another New Zealand native I think). These birds are quite large, at least twice the size of a normal pigeon with beautiful green plumage & white chest. Every now & then you catch one doing amazing aerobatics, swooping high up in the air then just dropping down as if they're just happy to be alive lol. I love them & I always feel privileged to get this close to one.
