Here in New Zealand, we're very proud of our native birds. Every year, Forest & Bird hold the Bird of the Year. New Zealander's can vote for their 5 favourite native birds and then a winning species is announced.
This year, and every year, we're backing the Kea. As well as being our company emblem, the Kea is the World's only alpine parrot, is extremely intelligent and you'll likely see one on your trip to Milford Sound or Mt. Cook with us.
Voting runs until 5pm on the 10th of November. To vote, please visit Bird of the Year 2019.
