  1. They sure are fast little buggers when they want to be! You got some great shots.

  3. A busy little hen & very similar to a kiwi?

    1. Similar in that they are both flightless birds and about the same size. They belong to the same family I believe. The kiwi is nocturnal and not very often seen at all. Wekas are quite cheeky at times and this fellow didn't seem to be shy at all.
