The NZ Pigeon. There are two species of native pigeon. The NZ Pigeon, known to the Maori as Kereru or in Northland as Kuku or Kukupa; and the Chatham Islands Pigeon or Parea. The Kereru are widely found throughout NZ in forested areas, particularly where there is pest control. They have striking iridescent green and bronze feathers with white on their lower chest and under belly. The beat of their wings creates a noisy and distinctive sound which can be heard throughout the forest.
