A surprise this morning when I found our largest Ruru fledgling had returned and was roosting with Huia our adult female.
I got even more of a surprise when I went to check on them later and found the little guy had left mum and was hunting in our nearby shelter-belt.
This was during the day at 3pm.
Clever boy this one.
How do I know where they are?
The wax-eyes and blackbirds tell me.

Our Ruru pair.
The Bandit on the left and Huia on the right.
Good to hear them call to each other at night again and also to see them roosting together after their big effort raising three fledglings.

A very happy couple back together again after their fledglings have left.
The effort these two put in every year to raise them is amazing.
The departure of the fledglings is always a shock as one day they are there and the next gone forever.
The Bandit on the left and Huia on the right roosting right next to our sleepout walkway.
We still get to have a chat every morning.

When you both discover that you are in the same place and closer than you expected.
