About the Pukeko
The pukeko (swamp hen) inhabits wetlands, farmland, roadsides and urban parks where they seek out a wide range of foods, including various kinds of vegetation, grubs, worms and small fish. Pukeko are deep blue and black, with red legs and bill. They flick their tail with its white underneath as an alert of danger. Their calls include a raucous screech. Breeding is a communal affair, were females may lay in the same nest, and incubation, feeding and caring for the chicks is shared by all in the group.
