    Thanks FruitBuns.

    Don’t ever remember seeing those, when I lived down there. Only the Sign of the Takahe.

    Sorry to read about you eyes, hope you get used to living with them.

    Was the sign of the Kiwi damaged in the earthquakes? I remember being violently car sick outside of it many years ago. It was so embarrasing as a bus load of tourists were watching me. I felt such an idiot!!
    I don’t remember the Sign of the Bellbird, but there was the Sign of the Takahe.

    The Sign of the Kiwi was damaged during the quakes and was closed for a time. The toilets remained open much to the relief of travelers.

    The Sign of the Kiwi only reopened last year..
    I have had a surprise family visit (totally unexpected) from Son & family who live in Queensland, so been a tad distracted. But yesterday we took the little one to Willowbank Wildlife Reserve…she loved it as is a true animal lover. Its true what they say about photographing kids & animals, but try doing both at same time and its even harder..neither was still long enough. But I did get a couple of birds to cooperated at least. This duck is obviously use to posing….lol…as is granddaughter.

    see if you can guess the owner of this plumage
    the tip is that it is definitely not the proud owner of next lot….

    lovely vale019..I presume sunset rather than sunrise.
    Thanks for the comment….the plumage is that of a rather unusual turkey. 😀

    Yes, it was sunset.

    That plumage is quite beautiful seen up close – the way it is layered and the markings of each feather – gorgeous.  You have a great eye for detail, Gypsyspirit.
