This young juvenile was trying to eat tawa fruit, but kept on dropping them. I held a couple fruits up and it started flapping its wing then got within a few inches of feeding on them - I just managed to get my phone out to start recording when the branch gave way 🙂 Then mum flew in to keep an eye on things. ...

Kerry the Kereru This beautiful bird was brought into our care after being spotted by a member of public outside their home. Radiographs were taken of her suspected injured wing which in turn, uncovered a fracture. After thinking this was the only injury, we went on to bandage the wing and provide pain relief. After orally medicating, we assumed she was regurgitating as fluid was coming back out. We noticed, however, the fluid was not coming from her beak but actually seeping from her crop area. Looks like this girl was in the wars as a ruptured crop was the unexpected issue! Today she is being transported to Wellington Zoo for further treatment. We wish her all the best!
