Songbird hits right note in bid to save native pigeon
Wednesday July 26, 2006
By Anne Beston
The country’s best-known songstress is coming to the aid of a bird that doesn’t sing, isn’t very bright and has a reputation for drunkenness.
Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has agreed to be patron of the $150,000 Kereru Discovery Project headed by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa in partnership with Wellington Zoo and Victoria University and due to be launched next month.
The aim is to halt the population decline of the endangered native wood pigeon, thought to be up to 20 per cent every decade.
The project includes advice on what home gardeners can do to attract the birds and a website on which city dwellers can register their properties so they can supply information about kereru in their backyards.
Apart from their size and striking iridescent-green colouring, kereru are known for their comical antics in spring and summer when they become drunk from gorging on berries which ferment in their stomachs.
Because of that, every year birds end up at the Department of Conservation or bird rescue centres.
