A New Zealand pigeon or Kererū (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae) feeds on the small white seeds of a cabbage tree (Cordyline australis), Dunedin, New Zealand, August 2009. The bird is approx. 25 cm long, (chest to tail). Before it became relatively rare, the kererū was the major disperser of cabbage tree seeds. The notches on the leaf margins are damage caused by the caterpillars of the Cabbage Tree Moth (Epiphryne verriculata).
