Came across 3 whio in the Nina River at around 11.30am. Heard their distinctive call and couldn't race down the slope fast enough! They were diving, swimming and calling. One appeared to tug at a broadleaf on the river's edge. Super cool!

I'd like to say I saw this bird out in some remote part of the country but I didn't. I manfully snuck up on it in the Te Wao o Nui exhibit where it happily nibbled my fingers and allowed me to take some photos.

But hey people load up caged birds on this website routinely so I thought I'd join the throng.

Found a single male whio in the Nina River just downstream from the second swing bridge along the Nina Track. We saw it preening and swimming. Initially it alerted us to his presence by his 'whio' call. We took some very low res photos with the cell phone and some video footage (also very low res). Nice way to start a day!
First time I've used Naturewatch to add an observation so I hope I've entered in everything ok!

Two blue duck flew north west along the river. Moments later, one flew south east along the river. It landed in a pool before taking off again and landing at two more spots to the south east.

Group of five birds seen beside waterway. Very tame, obviously well used to cyclists stopping to admire them. Close to the well-named "Cowboy Paradise".
