Behold, my terrible photo of a kingfisher, an uncommon sight in the area, taken while volunteering, proving that community service often provides extrinsic rewards

Tui, moments before things got chippy with a kaka over the feeder in Zealandia bird sanctuary. I estimate the tui population in Zealandia to be roughly eleventy million.

You are right Amy, I searched using English and scientific names.

It's kind of a bummer!

Hi Amy. Sorry to hear that you are having problems finding the species name. We have investigated and it turns out it was due to your birding region being set to 'Australasia' rather than 'Pacific Islands, Ocean'.

How do you handle birdwatching in a nature reserve? Like, they have feeders and work to protect the populations, but it isnt captivity. Do spots there go on your list??

Hi Amy. Yes, you can add sightings from Nature Reserves to your list. Chirp also automatically creates lists of everything you see in each reserve 😀
Andrew Goodall
I would say yes indeed. Wild they have the freedom to come and go.
Grace Simms
Yes - I would count them.

Do gray-breasted Martins mate for life? A couple just reoccupied the same pipe in the building across from my back window

Zorzals are beautiful and sweet and I love them except when they are singing at the literal crack of dawn outside my window then I want them all to die
