Weka bird

This friendly bird lives near the Pancake Rocks car park at Punakaiki on the west coast. Getting out of the car he walked right up to me looking for food. About the size of a chicken, the Weka or woodhen is a flightless bird unique to New Zealand. I spent less than 24 hours in the area but on the three separate occasions I parked here this bird was easily spotted strolling around. Here he was outside the cafe, walking along the road side.
