The Kereru -- New Zealand Wood Pigeon

From winter to the early summer the endemic kereru occasionally is visitor to our garden. Yet, more often we are able to observe this New Zealand bird on bush walks in the Waitakere Ranges. Feeding on tree fruits, berries, flowers, and leaves it sits high up in the crowns of nikau, puriri, taraire, and kohekohe, to name some. Sometimes it looks quite daring how this heavy bird clings upside down on thin branches to feed.

The kereru is called as well wood pigeon, New Zealand pigeon and in the north kuku or kukupa. The bird has an eye catching plumage. Chest and belly are white while the rest has shades of green to metallic green with a purplish to bronze shine. Feet and beak have a bright red colour.

Belonging to the group of herbivore eaters their diet consists of berries, fruit, flowers, and leaves. This makes them visit areas containing trees with fruits and berries like nikau, puriri, taraire, and kohekohe to name some. For some trees they are the only chance to spread the seeds.

Their nest is usually high up in the trees. One chick is raised per year on which their survival relies. Numbers are declining despite their protection since 1921. Causes are illegal hunting and food rivalry of rats and possums as well as predators going for their eggs.
