i was doing the surf of a few bird sites , had been to nz birds before , they have great stuff , like drawings and paintings and recordings of a good selection of bird song , kokako, tui , korimako ,etc.
with kokako i don’t even know if they have been or can be around here , but sure do want them around here, its already quite lovely but those kokako have got a note in there that is made to be heard , nice and early on a still morning , in with the rest of them ….. morepork calling now,
anyway, reading this article on the shining cuckoo, enjoying it quite a lot , checked out still more of the site and found that it is really quite full of wonderfull content and stuff
