I have always thought...

white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Great photos of the Pukeko - the sheen on the feathers is very beautiful.

Just when we thought that the Purple one in Australia was stocky enough! Such an impressive bird.

Beautiful bird. The feet look several sizes too big.

I think Your Pukeko is similar to our Moorhen! They are neat birds, great sighting!

Karen said...

Very impressive red head and beak!

These are great birds - even if they do strut about like bullies!
