We don't usually see so many of these wild birds together, so I was surprised when we saw such a large group of them. They are probably a pair and their almost-grown offspring that we see occasionally on the drive.
They seemed to be quite curious about the car stopped on the road.
Apparently, these native birds are quite smart. They were trained for this local ad a few years ago. There are even videos on their website to teach you to train your pukeko!
