This is a companion to my Bird of the Dayblog, which focuses on birds I have seen in Victoria, Canada.
When my husband and I started planning a trip to New Zealand, I was delighted to read about the large number of unique birds that reside there. Having exhausted the supply of new birds at home, this was a welcome opportunity to continue my birding education. This blog will cover the various birding sites on the North and South Islands and (hopefully) the multitude of birds we encounter there.

Late last week, we stopped in Matamata to see Hobbiton. Before entering we had to sign a non-disclosure agreement promising to keep everything we saw and heard there confidential. Hopefully, this didn't extend to the bird life or I could be in trouble. I saw these two birds swimming in the pond on the site. I don't think either of them were in the movie so I should be okay.
