A trek off the New Zealand’s tourist path reveals some truly interesting sights.

Wild chickens living at a picnic area.

Beside the campground.

Pukeko (water bird)

Found these little guys during a stop in Hawaii.

Another Hawaiian friend.

    Hi SZ,

    Yes the photos of the Falcon and the Owl were taken at a Falconry & Rescue Centre. The Falcon has leather anklets on with a metal eyelet for putting leather straps (Jesses) through.

    Raven…..we rarely see one of those where I live.

    Best wishes

    What great shots ! I have a raven coming round now as I have been leaving him meat bits. What is on his ankles on the top two pictures ? Is it for training ?
