Kiwi!


There are quite a few murals around Greymouth, this little one that has been painted onto a utility box features New Zealand's national bird the Kiwi. In case you didn't know Kiwi are flightless and are nocturnal so you may hear them in the countryside or small towns calling out to each other at night.

Linking up with Mural Monday

(Crunched up praying mantis sounds really horrible. We had a cat once that used to catch flies and carry them around in his mouth enjoying the buzzing. Also yuck.)

It must be amazing to see a real kiwi bird. Lovely to see them painted on an electric box. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Amy.
