Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Words and picture from Louise Thomas.

"It's often as hard to get one of these sitting down as it is to get one in flight. Welcome swallow/warou (Hirundo neoxena). The pink background is caused by the colourful pink aquatic weeds on the fresh water pond at Pauatahanui. Usually hawking in a circuit over the pond, one of the swallows rested briefly to have a good stretch on a stick poking out of the water."

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Captain John

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Captain John was recently adopted by a family. Here is what they had to say.
"To the wonderful people at SPCA. On Tuesday, Captain John came home with us to his new furever home. Safe to say he has adjusted well and is loving his new life. He has discovered the confines of the kid’s bed.
He is completely calm with three kids and two dogs. Thank you for looking after him until he came to us."
