The Great Keruru Count is back on! You might remember my post from last year about this great initiative, which is aimed at raising awareness about the importance of keruru and how we can help protect these beautiful birds.
We’ve noticed that in Ngaio, where we live, the keruru have just recently started coming back – they seem to disappear over winter, then return in spring to eat the cherry blossom flowers. They’ve been hanging out in pairs in the trees out the front of our house.
Here are a few photos we’ve snapped recently, when the weather’s been nice enough to catch the keruru in the sun:
Have you counted any keruru where you live lately?
