Royal spoonbill / Kotuku ngutupapa, Platalea regia
Native, conservation status: Naturally Uncommon, Sparse, Range Restricted, Increasing, Secure Overseas.
I would really love to know more about the formation of the ripple patterns on a spoonbill’s bill. Juveniles have a more graduated shading rather than rippled, so maybe it is related to the bill stretching longer as the bird matures?

Tracy Watson's Kauri leaf brooches have such a beautiful texture that is highlighted by the matte oxidised surface.

Awesome two day noho with the Kai Oranga whanau at the weekend - heaps more learning and a wonderful walk through some native bush on top of B5 hill in Whangara. This is the Kaikomako tree and i got to ID my first one in its seedling and adult form which was so exciting to see!! The Kaikomako is the tree that Mahuika (goddess of fire) threw her last fingernail of fire into after Maui tricked her into giving him all of her nine other flames - hence why it is known as the fire starter tree 🔥 #kaikomako #nznative #tree #nznativetree #firestarter #wood #mahuika #goddessoffire #maui #demigod #legend #stories #essenceoflife #kaioranga #journey
