Hi Mike, Nice spotting! You have lots of wonderful posts. I'm starting a birds of New Zealand mission to document biodiversity within New Zealand. (http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1252...) It would be wonderful if you would consider joining the mission and add your bird spottings to this mission and keep up the great posts. Cheers!
I agree with, Porphyrio porphyrio. They're known as the Pukeko in New Zealand.
