Pukeko, or Purple Swamp Hen, is found in New Zealand as well as Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Some believe Pukeko arrived in New Zealand from Australia about 1000 years ago, however all fossils are dated at less than 400 years. Therefore Pukekos are most likely a very recent migrant and must have either flown to New Zealand or been brought by Maori.
