NZ Pigeon (Kereru) in Hamilton
Wouldn't it be great to have Kereru back in our city? Many cities in New Zealand have healthy populations so let’s try and get them to sit on OUR power lines. If you have an open space like a gully at the back of your place why not plant a Tawa and a Miro. If space is a bit more limited perhaps a Nikau, Cabbage Tree or Pigeonwood may be more suitable.
We are planting for Kereru in Mangaiti Gully. We have successfully encouraged the Tui to reside once more in Hamilton. Now it is time to target the Kereru.
