Reminds me of David Shearer.
I had no idea those lived in NZ – never even seen a picture of one before.
And those have got to be the most evil looking eyes of any bird, they more than compensate for the bill…
I’ve seen them from a distance, but never close up. They just looked like herons from afar, but those eyes are really strange.
They’re a recent immigrant from Australia. The distribution is fairly patchy but they’re still found in a lot of spots.
The eyes are a kind of breeding season thing. The bill is though very funky. I liked the shot for showing off the eyes though.
Would you like to contact me here please. Would like to use some more of your pics and would like to yarn to you about it first.
A closer view of the eyes.
