This is the first of the last three blogs (do I hear you say something like 'thanks to God'?), and covers New Zealand species not covered in parrot blogs (March), and most recent this month (July) on waders and then herons and grated ones. This is a long blog with lots of photos but little slavo text I have considered necessary. Next, there will be two blogs about seabirds, the first (New Zealand 2) on gannets, seagulls, terns and pans, while the last (widespread celebration!) Will cover walls and albatrosses. I am very grateful to Etienne Littlefair for the two photos of Common Kiwi , taken under very light conditions and an ISO in excess of 20,000 ISO without flash, and also the photo of the Alcantista Roquera taken after a wait of several hours with very unappetizing conducts (I failed with frozen fingers). My thanks also to our leader, Brent Stephenson of Wrybill Tours who has left me the first photo of the group; also endured us with humor and patience and showed us so many species. So, all said, for them ...

Maori Hawk, adult female and juvenile found after many days with no success.

Weka Rasp : an extremely tame and trustful ralido

Calamón Takahé: another incredibly endemic endemic, this one of a population introduced in the island Tiritiri Matangi where there are no rats and where they walk freely among the visitors. > Maori Paloma: very difficult to photograph because it always seems to pose with one part of the body in the shade and another in the sun. (Photo by Etienne Littlefair): Horribly secretive took 4 hours with the weather quite rainy, cold and unpleasant before Etienne got this photo.

I failed! There is a group of small and very attractive passerines, starting with the Dorsigris Antechitos (above) and including Hohaoua Cabeciblanca and the Aboriginal Maori b>, the dark phase of this small pajarao with an exaggerated long tail very attractive. But equally beautiful was the Petroica Carbonera , but for me the prize should be given to the New Zealand Petroleum , an incredibly confident and sneaky species, as can be seen in the following photos when one got into the head that Geoff deserved a detailed investigation.

More endemic passerines here: Here ends the eighth part (currently the ninth because the parrots in Australia and New Zealanda published in March).
