Just imagine having this 30ft kererū drinking out of your swimming pool 😂

Disclaimer it’s not really that big 😉 I was just around at my friends house and he was playing around with his GoPro on this dish of water they have out for the birds when the kererū came in for a drink.

😍How about something cute for your mid-week enjoyment! We're super privileged to be providing hand rearing and veterinary support for our friends at Kākāpō Recovery. What an amazing season it has been! The longest Kākāpō breeding season ever with 75 live chicks! Absolutely incredible! Here are a few adorable snaps of some of the chicks we have cared for this season. Isn't it amazing the transformation from tiny white and grey fluff balls to gorgeous green feathers 😍

Things have changed quite dramatically in the last day with numbers in rehab almost doubling over night.
6 (yes 6!) new arrivals from The Wildlife Hospital - Dunedin since yesterday .
There are a lot of youngsters around at the moment, figuring out how life in the big wide world works. Nearly all these birds have suffered impact injuries.
This brings the number in temporary rehab to 11. ❤️🐦
