New Zealand Day 10 – Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park

Another of the tourist place but we were all hyped up to see the Kiwi. Unfortunately, out of the 4 different species of Kiwi on display, we only managed to see 1. The others were too shy and hiding somewhere in the dark enclosure. No pictures allowed in the Kiwi display area so have to make do with these stuffed Kiwis on display at the souvenir shop.18-DSC05476

Out of the Kiwi enclosures and into the open, our first sighting was this not afraid of human, Spur Winged Plover which was walking all over the place.

There are many species of ducks all over the place but I can’t really differentiate between all the different species. Anyway ducks are not my favourite photo subjects so no photos here.

But there is this big pigeon. Also very tame.05-DSC05358It landed on my head then hopped onto my hand before flying off to this railing.

The ladies had a nice time feeding the Kakariki08-DSC05380

I got photos of some other nice birds.
