Last Friday, we both visited the Auckland Zoo. One of the places visited was a bird enclosure of New Zealand Forrest Birds, such as New Zealand Woodpigeons, New Zealand Saddleback, Kaka, Kakariki and Tui and a few others.
I walked uphill to the entrance the birds live in a very large tent made of steel wire and you enter in 2 doors. Well, I was about to enter the last door when I saw this particular Woodpigeon.
Knowing the usual case with birds, get too close and they take off. I particularly wanted to photograph the New Zealand Woodpigeon.
I asked it if I could come in and this guy gave me a funny look.
This is the record of New Zealand Woodpigeon expressions. I came in and the Woodpigeon did not move. It just gave me a look as if to say, “Who are you? and Why are you speaking to me?” It had a worried frown, quite a character. who says Birds are not wacky?
