I spied the cat out of the window looking intently up the tree. It was an odd little face. What was he looking at?
The Kereru (NZ wood pigeon) and the cat eyed each other for a bit. I anxiously eyed the cat, ready to run out and shout at him if he decided to climb the tree in pursuit of a fat pigeon dinner.
Such a beautiful bird! It was busy eating the young leaves from the tree.
It obligingly climbed higher into the tree so I could photograph its stunning plumage.
Then it flew away, and the disappointed cat settled down to bask in the last rays of the evening sun.
What a lovely end to the day, to see such a magnificent sight!
