meany red legs
we live a bit out of town from the main part of Auckland – we’re not rural by any means, but we’re close to it. you can get all the way from my office to our home without leaving any urban streets containing houses for example.
but within a few short minutes drive you can be out in the sticks (or the ‘wops’ as they refer to it). and one of the great thing about that is you see a lot of wild chickens wandering about.
this was a particularly large one in an ice cream shop carpark.
how do we encourage birds to use our new bird feeder ?
and if i’m working from home they often swoop lower than our upstairs window meaning we can look down on them
just the other day one sat on the roof across the road. i just had time to grab my camera before it whizzed off again. i hadn’t realised their faces were so blue. i guess that’s why they call them red kites.
