The Purple Swamphen, in New Zealand, where it is known as the Pūkeko. Pūkeko is probably one of the most recognised native birds in New Zealand with its distinctive colourings and habit. It look very similar to takahe, although takahe are much heavier.
The colour red was associated with nobility and power by Māori so the Pūkeko was held in high esteem because of its red beak and legs.
