Flowering tree lucerne seems to be the food of choice for the kereru in Te Mata Park right now. Enjoyed taking part in the Great Kereru Count, and equally in observing the abundant tui feeding on kowhai nectar.

Loving the count! I saw a couple in a tree from my house so went down the road (and down a driveway) to get a closer look and there were seven of the buggers!! Was rapt! All sitting and eating in what looked like a tree lucerne? Pinkish flowers though 🌺 i couldn't get close enough to check out the leaves and flowers close up 😓 Can't wait for the day we see flocks of them like other pigeons 😍🌎 bad pic sorry for the quality you might be able to make out 1 or 2 😂
