Pūkeko

Porphyrio porphyrio melanotus

Description:

We didn't see him coming, but he wasn't distressed or worried, so he came quite near to us. He was foraging for food, and didn't really care of what we were doing (we were taking pictures of him), until he left in slow pace A truly graceful -and normally very shy- bird.
