Hugh Robertson from the Department of Conservation and author of the Field Guide to Birds of New Zealand is interviewed by Simon Morton on the This Way Up show, Radio New Zealand National.
In this interview Hugh and Simon are visiting Zealandia in Wellington and talking everything hihi. Hugh provides a nice introduction to hihi ecology and what hihi look and sound like – with help from some calling males in the background. Zealandia is celebrating 10 years since hihi were successfully reintroduced and it’s a good setting to learn about their past declines and the conservation challenges faced by this most colourful of New Zealand birds.
