Birds who visit

Spotted recently by Mike Norden of Waikawa Beach Road, this matuku moana, white-faced heron:

Mike says on Facebook: Enjoying the company of the heron. Very friendly critter.

It visited Daniel Anderson in Walkers Lane too:

At least a couple of folks in the Strathnaver area have also reported visits by this bird (or perhaps another). Have you seen it at your place?

  1. About a month ago we picked up a very weak fledgeling white faced heron on the beach (it stood, fell, stood, fell) and took it to the Wellington Rehabilitation Centre in Ohariu . Sadly it died that night in spite of their ministrations.

    Usual residence: Waikawa
