I always smile when I see young pukekos with their huge feet!

They do indeed look very amusing, and your photo of them really does do them justice.

Have a great weekend.

Too funny, they do look like their feet are a couple sized too big! Thank you, Bettyl, for coming by sharing your creative photography on the Weekly Top Shot, #167!

They are very sweet with those big feet ... Are they the same bird we call marsh hens or gallinules? If not the same, definitely cousins!

They do looks kinda oddly disproportionate

Mari said...

Pukeko? Sounds like a funny name. It seem to be difficutl walking in those big feet.

They do look awkward but cute at the same time. :)
