Kōkako Dawn Chorus

June 10th | Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

Email Tireni Ratema on tratema@doc.govt.nz to book.

Join us for a quiet 30-minute hike into Otanewainuku to kōkako territory. Sit and wait quietly to hear the beautiful song of the kōkako at first light. You must be absolutely silent to hear and witness this magnificent bird.

There are no guarantees that the birds will sing for us. Even on a good day, a sighting can be no more than a fleeting glance.

Participants must have had breakfast before they arrive. Please bring a torch/head lamp, warm clothes, a raincoat, good footwear, something waterproof (e.g. raincoat) to sit on, snacks and drink while you wait and a camera or bird binoculars if they have them.

Bookings are essential - 10 people maximum per session.

Who is this event for: Everyone - however not suitable for young children as you must be able to silent and wait in the dark for extended periods of time.
