Fernbirds, Pauatahanui

About 20 Fernbirds have recently been released at Pauatahanui wetlands near Porirua.  We found two pairs today.  They are quiet birds that spend most of their time well hidden in the reeds, but they aren’t really shy of humans and with patience you can see them flit between bushes.  These birds are banded and are being monitored closely.
