an unexpected guest

We sat down for a picnic at Stony Batter on Waiheke Island and look who popped in! 
Weka used to be common all throughout the North Island of New Zealand but due to loss of habitat and predators are now only in isolated areas. I had never seen one in the wild. This one was so friendly. It felt quite special to be hanging out for awhile. I hope those legs can move fast, these critters are flightless.
