pool in cave; parents and 5 adolescent - fledglings
Found with two paradise shelducks. Maybe a chick?
They are eating with there mum!!
Their nest is 20 mins away and they walk all the way to zealandia with their babies at only 4 days old and honk outside the gates until they're let in by the workers
One male on the lawn, honking away, communicating with his female partner who was 8-10 metres up, sitting on a dead black beech branch. I managed to get a photo of each before the male flew away, past the female who followed.
2 male and 4 female paradise ducks seen at 3:30 pm
Male and female pair.
Six of nine survive
Female and three ducklings
