Thank you!
A powerful earthquake slammed New Zealand's city of Christchurch on Tuesday 22.02, killing at least 65 people, and sending rescuers scrambling to help people trapped under collapsed buildings. The 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit the country's second largest city around lunchtime, causing buildings to collapse and sending bricks and other heavy debris toppling into busy city streets. True prayer brings joy, gives strength to overcome difficulties, so pray for them!

  • the word "pukeko" is of maori origin, but in other parts of the world it's called a purple swamphen or purple gallinule.   For such a widespread bird it's a surprisingly bad flier, hardly able to flap more than a few tens of meters with its legs dangling down, before crash landing.   Once on the ground it walks around looking for insects, frogs and the like, periodically flashing the white plumage under its tail, particularly if it feels threatened.
  • The Pukeko , or New Zealand Swamp Hen is a member of the rail family, and is similar to other species found all over the world. It is one of the few New Zealand native birds to have flourished since the arrival of man, and can be found in almost any grassland area, especially in swampy locations. Groups will often be seen foraging for food in road-side areas. With their bright blue plumage and red beaks, they easily stand out against the New Zealand greenery, particularly when their white tail feathers begin flashing in alarm. Just why they have struck a chord with the Kiwi psyche is hard to say, but you'll find their images on all manner of art and craft works. Ask any visitor to New Zealand what bird they remember most, and they will more than likely answer, "The Pukeko!"
