"You do the Pukeko Stomp, and you turn around......that's what it's all about!"
This native bird to New Zealand, common name Pukeko, or Purple Swamphen, is a no flyer. Would rather walk, but can fly short distances. It's bright blue/purple feathers were prized by Maori for their winter cloaks, centuries ago. They are now a protected species.
Although they can be culled if becoming a nuisance in some areas. Very prevalent in some parts of New Zealand, especially around our city lakes, where this was taken. they are very nosey, and as people have been feeding them bread for years they come right up to people, and eat out of hands.
