Four More Kaka Released!
We had a great day, the birds were singing to us on the way.
We went from Birds Clearing and arrived at the Wainui Hut just in time to meet the others that had walked in from Canaan for the release of the Kaka.
The Kaka were fed delicious apples and oranges cut up into small pieces. Then the window of the avery was opened.
We stood watching and watching, then one of the birds finally mustered up the courage to fly out and flew as fast as you can fly to a beech tree away from sight. The others then followed, seeing that it was a good idea. Three of them stuck around the trees when they were out of the avery the other one was still in the beech tree.
We watched the birds for a bit then walked home. It was a fabulous day!

P.S. I hope there is another release soon.
