I counted 6!

With the help of my sharp-eyed companions I spotted 6 Keruru at the Otari Bush Reserve yesterday.

The Karaka and Tawa tree berries are abundant at the moment so the birds have plenty to feast on.

Two of the birds were perching in trees that allowed some reasonable close-up photos to be taken.

I have added the count of 6 to the Counting Keruru website. The survey closes today. The results will be most interesting. It is exciting to be witnessing the resurgence of these beautiful native birds.

    You got some good shots there. I had my (almost) first kereru come to visit at the bach. Our karaka berries are well spent, but we have the smaller karamu ripening now.
