Kokako chicks born in New Zealand


This video from New Zealand says about itself:

Join Tony Way as he travels to the Pureora Forest in New Zealand to join a team from the Department of Conservation to capture a rare kokako bird and then release it on Tiritiri Matangi, a bird sanctuary in the Hauraki Gulf.

Kokako chicks hatch in Auckland’s Ark

Tue, Dec 7, 2010

North Island kokako chicks have hatched in the Ark in the Park open sanctuary – the first time the threatened birds have bred in Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges for 80 years.

The hatching of the two chicks, discovered on Monday, is being celebrated by staff and volunteers at the Ark, where a nest was discovered late last month.

The kokako reintroduction has been a close collaboration between Forest & Bird (BirdLife in New Zealand), the Auckland Council and West Auckland iwi, Te Kawerau a Maki, at the Ark, which is 20 minutes drive from central Auckland at the Cascades Kauri Park, near Swanson.
