Day 3: Wild eyes Activity 1

Winter Learning Journey (100% Pure New Zealand)

Activity 1: Curious Kiwi, a native New Zealand bird, is your tour guide for today. He is going to take you to visit the Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park where many of his aunties and uncles currently live. The bird park is a five-hour drive from Dargaville so you hit the road right after breakfast and arrive in Otorohanga at lunch time. As you walk through the birdhouse you learn about the work being done to conserve and protect the native birds of New Zealand. You decide to help out by ‘adopting’ a native animal. Visit the Adopt a Critter page’ on the Otorohanga bird house website to choose one animal to adopt. On your blog, tell us the name of the animal that you chose and a little bit about them. What kind of animal are they? What do they eat? Where do they normally live? You can use Google to help you with your research.

What kind of animal I chose: The animal I chose was the red-crowned Kakariki or the red-crowned parakeet

My Reason: The reason I chose this animal was that it reminded me about a parrot. The shape of the bird and also the colours made me remind me about parrots. This bird has a plumage green around it's body and has a red pattern on its head.

Where do they live?
Red-crowned parakeets can live in a wide variety of habitats including dense temperate rainforests, coastal forests, scrubland, forest edges and open areas.
