New Zealand native wood pigeon…

Hubby and I had a nice drive over to Governor’s Bay on Banks Peninsula for lunch the other day and stopped off at a lookout point by the Sign of the Kiwi. I captured an image looking over towards the Southern Alps. Look how much snow is still there even though it is meant to be Spring!  We can see the hills from where we live and I noticed there was even a dressing of snow on Banks Peninsula itself the next day. While I was taking photographs we heard a noise like a whoosh and looked over to see a keruru – a  native wood pigeon sitting in the tree close by. The whooshing noise is a noise distinctive to the native pigeon and it made our day to see this beautiful wild bird sitting so contentedly in the tree posing for the camera : – )
Thanks for visiting!
