Crazy Colour Challenge – Green Bird…The Kereru! NZ Woodpigeon!

This is to show our beautiful unique Kereru otherwise known as the New Zealand Woodpigeon!

Not to be confused with the Green Bird of another post recently made. Never mind! I can easily make a mistake with any other bird of another country, I would not know not having seen it in real life…

You will note the head is Green not Black…It is the largest Woodpigeon in the world, the size of a large stock pot.

It is a lovely gracious bird that was kind enough to allow me to take its photograph. There is something good about these birds. 

The 1st two birds are around the corner from where I live in Onehunga, that includes the thumbnail shot.

#2 At the Auckland Zoo

Sometimes the only place I can catch a Woodpigeon when I want to find one.

#3 Buried Village Rotorua

This is on the side of the road, opposite the Burried village. A recent photo. It was high up in a tree.
