    Excellent. Look at how effective its plumage is at repelling the water.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Spent the weekend on the West Coast, caught up with this guy at Hokitika Gorge. Kids loved being able to get so close.

    I have reckoned for a number of years that we should farm Weka and Kiwi.

    Thanks @Rushy , I remember a few years ago someone was trying to farm Weka ( I think Banks Peninsular) it was either not successful or they could never get permission to kill them , Chathams only place you can do that I think .

    I have just always reckoned that if you want a species to survive then farm it commercially. Imagine if the Weka and Kiwi were as common a chooks. Now as for Wood Pigeons, one of those buggers cost me a couple of weeks wages and a confinement to barracks. Who knew that what my grandmother had taught me was nice to eat wasn’t considered fair game on an army survival course. Anyway that is another story from a bygone era.

    Three pics from an Africa trip. First is a Roller, national bird of Botswana. Other two shots taken in Okovango Delta. The kingfisher was a microscopic, waay smaller than our ones.
