Kereru count

We're taking part in Forest & Birds - The Great Kererū Count - and we think you should too! It's on until the 5th of October and every piece of information is worthwhile for their research, even if you didn't spot one. See all the details here
“Kererū – the native New Zealand pigeon, which is known as the kūkupa in Northland is the only bird that can swallow large berries like tawa, pūriri, miro and karaka, so it plays a key role in regenerating our broadleaf forests,” says event organiser and Kiwi Conservation Club Manager, Tiff Stewart. We think it might be responsible for some rather large presents left last week on one of our staffs cars!!

Last year 2036 kererū were seen, with the top regions for sightings Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin. Let's get looking! (Until Oct 5th!)
