New Zealand's 'Bird of the Year' Goes To The Kereku, The Lovable Pigeon of New Zealand

I love this!

October 15, 2018

New Zealand votes for a 'bird of the year' and this year they awarded it to the Kereru. Now, the Kereru apparently is a very clumsy bird that falls off trees. That might be cute on its own but apparently the Kereru LOVES fermented fruit (which contains alcohol). The bird is also known as the 'New Zealand Pidgeon'

Forest and Bird, the conservationist group behind the annual bird of the year explained that these drunk birds and very lovable clowns. 

Can we start a 'bird of the year' event??
