kākāriki karaka

Yesterday at Pukaha National Wildlife Centre, I managed to tick another bird off my wish list. Before now I had never seen a orange-fronted parakeet/kākāriki karaka and it wasn’t from lack of effort.

I try and keep Friday’s free for a day of photography. It is one of the benefits of being self-employed. This week’s plan was a visit to Pūkaha where I photographed the riflemen last year. I was hoping to find a nesting pair again this year, but that didn’t happen on this visit. What I did manage to photograph there for the first time, was the yellow crowned kākāriki.
