    From that brief period before they became a corporation. Interestingly this, their first “hit”, was more popular in NZ than anywhere else in the world.

    Nobody likes a whiny pukeko kid that won’t take “no – no more” for an answer.

      Not on their roof, not on their fence, not on their trellis, not on their lawn below their kitchen window, & certainly not right outside their back screen door when the slider’s open.

          This is what a whingeing pukeko kid looks like :/

            Awww Pickles you look so fine and flying like a real bird.
            Keep up the sooky la la pouts, looks effective!
            A few pooks flying together could look like The Birds
            one of Alfred’s great movies. 😎

          And this is what they look like when they’ve learned to fly & think you’ve just gone to your back door …

            A friend has two ducks who come and hammer on her door to let her know that they are back for the season.

            It looked very funny when that bird* came strolling in like a welcome visitor, then looked as if it had suddenly realised that it had come to the wrong house and backed out, looking really embarrassed as a person would do. ‘Oh ! I AM sorry…wrong house…I thought that the Browns lived here…sorry…sorry…’

            *thrush, I think. It walked in, and walked out.I’ll swear it was blushing under its feathers,

              Yep – I reckon it probably. The pooks are not allowed in my house because, quite frankly, no matter how charming they are at times, they have the toilet habits of freedom campers.

              Thank you for your pooks message & photo of the dog & dad. I have informed the pooks their movies have received critical acclaim.

              PS: One simply has to pretend to not be home when one has a whiny pukeko kid. Otherwise the kid doesn’t leave!

              Some bloody freedom flyer bird has done one on my clear ‘porch roof’ at the back door. An ostrich, if the size is anything to go by.

              Pukeko boys do when they fall out of trees.

              Well, the smile was wiped off its face. I have never seen anything as funny as the contrast between its demeanour when it pranced in and its demeanour when it hurried out. It was just like a person who’d walked into a stranger’s house.

              Thanks to Pete for being postman.

              I love that photo of dog and dad. Some children saw it and believed it, especially when their mother said that she had known ———-. That meant that it must be true, of course.

              I was surprised to see an enormous, glossy black chook outside when I was at the kitchen window. There are some who make themselves at home in various places around here, but I haven’t seen one at mine before.They are goodlooking chooks, like the ones on trays and things – if you see what I mean.

              It would be lovely if the PDT/s would not pointlessly downtick in General Chat. Childish spite & automatic disagreement have no place here.
