Thank you so much Tony for the educational posts about the New Zealand Storm-petrel! I enjoyed reading that.

Yes, I do feel the same way Dominic - that is why I made the group. I love birds and I love to study birds. Wildlife and nature are important to me.

As a child living in the suburbs of NYC, besides pigeons and sparrows, you would occasionally see blue jays or cardinals.  But one day I found a dead bird in our cement backyard and was taken by its beauty.  It looked artificial.  My dad and I looked it up in the encyclopedia and identified it as a scarlet tanager.  I can see that bird as if it was yesterday.  It left a big impression on me.  Well, forty something years later, on my Florida property, I had the thrill of watching a live pair of scarlet tanagers going about their business one morning.  Birds, and really all of the natural world, is such a part of my life, I can't imagine it any other way.  I know that you all feel the same way, or else you wouldn't be here.

Tony and Steph, outstanding examples of beauty in the wild and coming for lunch.

Dallas, this is such wonderful news! Interesting the way they discovered a bird and the ways they are tracking to establish its territory. 

There was a statement that puzzles me, "Three specimens of the diminutive 35g seabirds were collected off New Zealand in the 1800s and are held by museums overseas." I assume those three were collected, as stuffed specimens.

The sponsors make up an interesting group.

"The project has been funded this year by grants from Mohammed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund, BirdLife International Community Conservation Fund, The Little Barrier Island Hauturu Supporters Trust and ASB Trust, Auckland Council, Forest & Bird Central Auckland Branch and Peter Harrison/Zegrahm Expeditions, with further support from the Department of Conservation, Hauraki Gulf Forum and Landcare Research."
