The kereru is a native N.Z bird.


They have green feathers. They are 51 cms long and weigh about 550-850 grams. They have white feathers. Their heads are green but sometimes look purple.


Their habitat is on Norfolk Island bush and in New Zealand bush.


 Their diet is berries, fruit, flowers, drupes and leaves. They eat 

from puriri, karaka and taraire trees. They eat berries.


They lay their eggs in nests in trees. They lay one egg and both the parents take turns sitting on the egg. When it hatches they feed it milk.

I like these birds because they are cute.
