Description

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!
