Kaka swoops into Mata­mata, gives res­i­dent de­light

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

An un­ex­pected vis­i­tor flew into Mata­mata for a brief ap­pear­ance last week. Na­tive par­rots or kaka are very rarely seen in res­i­den­tial ar­eas so you can imag­ine the sur­prise of a Mata­mata res­i­dent when he no­ticed one peck­ing at the bark of one of the trees in his back­yard. The res­i­dent, who wished to re­main anony­mous, said he felt com­pelled to send the photo be­cause it had a nice feel good el­e­ment to it.

‘‘It’s not ev­ery day you get this sort of vis­i­tor in your back­yard,’’ he said.
