Kokako, Boundary Stream

Kokako Boundary Stream 2011-11-20

The North Island Kokako is pretty rare and only found in a few dense bush areas where populations have been preserved.  There are several pairs at Boundary Stream reserve near Napier.  (The South Island Kokako is almost certainly extinct).  You need to be in the area first thing in the morning to hear their beautiful haunting call wafting through the forest.
