Large Pluteus in a group of four, the largest fruit body as photographed, 9.5 cm in diameter x 6.5 cm height. The grey-brown cap has a fibrous appearance with the fibres radiating out from the centre. The gill colour is tan-pink with a darker edge. The stipe is light grey-brown with fibres along the entire length, with a bulbous base. On very rotten large fallen log in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Heard its call, and then saw it bobbing along behind the fence in the vegetation.
Eating kowhai leaves.
One bird was shaking it's tail feathers around occasionally. The other made repeated attempts to peck at it
We live on a farm in Brookby and have significant old forests and often heard birds call. Not sure if they are kiwi but sound quite a lot like you recordings. I have taped a couple. There are lots of holes in our bush like your pictures. We do have lots of morepork around as well. I do hear them quite a bit.
Here is the youtube link of the recorded call
On leaf of Oak.
4 adults, 2m & 2f, foraging under the macadamia tree and then in the paddock of a semi-rural garden. They flew into totara trees when a magpie swooped over them. Quail have been spotted more frequently this Spring when compared with previous years.
I am on the flight path of a kereru who stops on its way home to poo from a totara tree at the back of my section so have lots of palm seedlings appearing below its sitting position. It flew overhead yesterday at about 4pm after making a deposit.
Small yellowish insects on the underside of Pittosporum karo leaves.
Scale like insects on the underside of Metrosideros kermadecensis 'Variegata' leaves.
Pluteus with a distinctly fibrous looking cap, grey-brown with darker fibres radiating out from the centre. The cap has undulating "bumps" and the gill colour is tan-pink with a darker edge. The stipe is light grey-brown with fibres down the entire length, a similar colour to the cap with a distinctly bulbous base. This fruit body was lighter in colour than is typical, 6 cm in diameter and 6.5 cm height. On very rotten fallen log in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
This kereru was eating the budding flowers of the NZ Jasmine Parsonsia heterophylla which is growing in my urban garden.
