Birds of ZEALANDIA

Over forty different species of native birds have been recorded in our sanctuary valley, many of them endemic (found in no other country). To make the most of your visit travel slowly and quietly through the sanctuary, listening out for birdsong. Often our wildlife will come to you! Many of the birds in ZEALANDIA are very rare, and some are virtually non-existent outside of areas protected like ours. Some of the different species you may see are listed below.
