    Hey guys im back, have spend the past 4 days o n tiritiri matangi island doing some research on New zealands endemic and extremely rare and endangered bird life, these birds live here and nowhere else, most of them have been extict on out mainland for decades and now only survive on offshore islands of highly managed 'mainland islands' i spent alot of time snapping off many photos and some of my best ones are below, please take a look at some of NZ's most beautiful bird life, and yes i took these photos myself :yesnod:

    Edit: Have Uploaded Them as Attachments, Should make it easier for all of you :wink:

    lol we dont have owls, we have moreporks which are a close reletive of the owl, however like most are nocternal and only come out at night so getting a photo would be extremly hard considering i have a standard flash
