Who me? Yes you!
New Zealanders voted these guys Bird of the Year for 2018. They were certainly a strong theme of my winter 2018.

Just voted the New Zealand bird of the year today - our native wood pigeon. About 2 minutes after hearing that I went out the back door and there was one guzzling the berries on the tree. Look at the size of the berry in his beak ... he proceeded to swallow it whole and then crap. They are greedy sods and like little barrels with wings. Altho they do fly they were almost hunted to extinction in years gone by due to the fact they were large slow targets. I have named him Clyde ... I think he looks like a Clyde. One of my cats was very intrigued with him as well ... in a fight my money would be on Clyde br#nzbirdoftheyear2018 #nzwoodpigeon #mynewfriendclyde #kereru

Nice to see the Kereru has won the Forest & Bird 2018 Bird of the year.
While the kererū population is classed as stable overall, it is in danger of becoming extinct in some areas. It is an important bird for our native forests, as it's the only native bird big enough to swallow and disperse the large fruit of some trees.
I took this photo while up at Sabine Hut, Lake Rotoroa. #nzbirds #nzwoodpigeon #kereru #nzkereru #nzwildlifeartist #nicolareifartist #lovebirds #wildbirds #nelson #nature #nelsonwildlife #nelsonlakes #nelsonlakesnationalpark #conservation #nzforestandbird

My morning so far.........Went to take a shot of the light at 7.30 this morning, opened the window and a Bumblebee landed on my wrist and a Kereru landed in the Crabapple to eat breakfast. All photos taken with bumblebee on wrist! 😄👍🐝 #morninglight #bumblebeequeen #kereru #nzwoodpigeon #nzbirds #nznativebirds #crabapple

As I was singing Happy Birthday to my Dad, I spied 2 plump Kereru perched on the lines outside...of course I grabbed my camera & got snapping.
At his funeral a Huge wood pigeon flew down over everybody's head & ever since then I have believed the Kereru to be a very special Kaitiaki.

Kererū stalking 😍 the sound of their wings in flight is music to my ears. .

This guy welcomed me to work this morning. So well fed he could barely fly and bending every branch he landed on. I think I'll call him Chubs the Kereru.

Chubby Kereru 🐦
Pretty cool being able to get so close to them. They watched me intently while I watched them, and clicked (making them blink). #kereru #kūkupa #nzwoodpigeon #nznativebirds #birdphotography #kererugallery #canonnz #canon80d

This beautiful New Zealand pigeon/kereru suffered a fractured clavicle from window strike, resulting in temporary loss of flight. Window strike is sadly a frequent issue for this species, with impact injuries resulting in head trauma, ruptures, fractures, breaks, or death. After 7 weeks of rehab and rest this pigeon was thankfully successfully released back into the wild.
