New Zealand Favorite Bird - Edwin!
What a Beauty!
I've found the coolest bird of New Zealand!!! Well, we have seen quite a few amazing and lovely birds, but this one has the greatest character for sure! His name is Edwin - at least that is what I think his name is! He is quite aggressive with his need for bread - and loves that people bring it to him all day long. I just love his long, long neck, cool back ruffly feathers, and lack of fear with people. Although, he is a little intimidating. I did get up the nerve to hand a piece of bread to his cousin and got a nip on my fingers! Probably won't do that again. They are wild birds. It's easy to forget that. I can't believe how many different kinds live in this area. Some are similar to our Mallard Ducks, but many of them are quite a lot different. It is fun to watch them and see how they interact with one another.
