I WONDER WHY THESE BIRDS ARE SO FAT!
Well it's because they are stuffing their bellies full of new young kowhai tree shoots! My tree never has leaves on the branches except for the ends. They are to heavy to balance themselves there to be able to eat! I was about 3 feet away from this one as he sat there eating! His mate was there too but flew up to a high tree when he heard the door open. Here is a BIRDSEYE view!! he he!
Here is his mate high in the tree.
