New Zealand Birds

21 Pins16 Followers
Bird Life of Aotearoa (The Land of the Long White Cloud). Many species are uniquely New Zealand. Due to New Zealand's geological isolation the bird life here has developed down a unique evolutionary path. This isolation in the absence of mammalian predators for millions of years also meant that many of the native species are flightless and nest on the ground.
