Pukeko and Pohutukawa

New Zealand Pohutukawa Tree Christmas - Some people only want their extended family to see their efforts, the dedicated site we provide can do this easily
There's a pukeko in my garden
The pohutukawa tree (Metrosideros excelsa) with its crimson flower has become an established part of the New Zealand Christmas tradition.
Pūkeko are swamp birds & live in our wetlands. Their long & heavy legs make it hard for them to get airborne when we drive past, so we try to go quietly :-D
