Or wood pigeon, just outside my office. This guy's wings were so noisy when he came over. See this Wiki entry for more detail about this bird and better photos.

A few days ago we had ice down south and tornadoes in the Waikato; yesterday it was torrential rain and flood in the top half of the North Island; today, no power, no phone. Parts of Northland flooded in March and just finished repairing all the damage. Here in Nelson, well, we had a bit of low temperature. This is what the clouds looked like yesterday. (The white line shows the top half of North Island.)

    Stay safe and keep blogging.
