Each year Forest and Bird gives the nation the chance to vote for their favourite New Zealand Bird. The winning bird becomes the ‘Bird of the Year’
New Zealand’s native birds are unique. Did you know that more than half the birds in New Zealand are not found in any other countries? Unfortunately due to predators and habitat loss, many of our birds are endangered and threatened with extinction.
At the Bird of the Year website you can find out about a wide variety of our birds, and vote for your favourite.
Will the 2015 bird be the Hihi? Kākā? Bar-Tailed Godwit? Kererū? Kōkako?
Voting closes on October 25th.
