New Zealand is generally quite famous for it’s nature, scenery and wildlife and not least of all due to it’s large number of diverse bird species. We won’t pretend to know what species all of these are but it would be rude to leave any out so maybe you guys might be able to identify one for us! 🙂
New Zealand Fan Tail
These guys were incredibly confident little birds who would happily swoop down the from the trees and fly in circles around us within arms reach!
The New Zealand Weka
Often mistaken for Kiwis, these are another, more common, heavyweight flightless bird native to New Zealand. The pictures aren’t so good of this one simply because we came across it in the middle of the night and were trying to get a photo of it as it wandered around our camper!
New Zealand Oyster Catcher
Gonna need some help with this one!
Wandering Albatross (assuming we heard the boat driver correctly over the noise of the sea and Ben vomiting into a bucket)
What we did hear though was that it had a wing span of about 3 metres!
Ben and Jess 🙂
