New Zealand wood Pigeon Kereru

Made by Angela van Wayenburg

I made this sometime ago, a New Zealand Wood Pigeon (Kereru) I really enjoyed making it. Made from balls of newspaper, with a cardboard tail, all covered in paper clay. The feet were a bit of a change, but made with wire wrapped in muslin, which was dipped in a mix of PVA and paper Mache glue, seemed to work all.

  1. I’ve never heard of this bird, but I can see that they’re beautiful. I love the way you painted it – and it has that calm look that reminds me of our mourning doves. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      The Wood Pigeon or Kereru, is native to New Zealand. We are lucky enough at have them in our garden. They are a large bird growing up to 50cm in length. We love them.
