School holidays is usually the time for an extra hour in bed. Not for the young birders at the BirdsNZ Youth Camp held at Pukorokoro Miranda. They were often up before dawn.
Pleasingly they did find time to add some new birds to the flock.
Being young birders a whole lot of new species were added.
Somehow even a kokako found it’s way into the gathering of shorebirds.
It was great to see the enthusiasm for this conservation project. There are some amazing pieces of artwork amongst the new additions.
The Pukorokoro Miranda FLOCK has 110 members, many more birds are being created in other places.
