They’re a dime a dozen

The Northland Age - - Local News -

The flood­gates have opened since news of the Kerik­eri fei­joa that was do­ing a very good im­per­son­ation of a kiwi (But they can perch, May 9).

All sorts of freak fei­joas have come to light, in­clud­ing Kerik­eri cou­ple John and Sue Wil­letts’ ground-break­ing photo of a small fam­ily of fei­joa birds — mum, dad and ju­nior — which had set up camp on a piece of fire­wood in their pack­ing shed.

Jes­sica Jack had a photo of what she said was just one of many fei­joas re­sem­bling the na­tional bird that her fa­ther Peter Jack had found in his Kerik­eri or­chard over the years, while Shon­telle Mustchin, of Christchur­ch, con­tacted the North­ern Ad­vo­cate about an­other kiwi-shaped fei­joa that a friend was sell­ing on Trade Me as a fundraiser for the Child Can­cer Foun­da­tion. It went for $20.
