On Sunday, 22nd April 2012 a single kereru was released from Bush Haven. It flew into a nearby tree and Bubs came and sat on a branch nearby. We don’t think it is one of her babies, but she has not chased it away and the two have been seen several days later, fly in the trees as if playing ‘tag’.
They have also both come for food and eaten from a dish – previously a Bubs-only happening. A friend from Australia was staying and the two birds fed side by side on separate dishes on the first day after release.
