"New Zealand Robin" Tiritiri Matangi Island Things to Do Tip by hunwagner

Tiritiri Matangi Island Things to Do: 17 reviews and 17 photos


This endemic species is still found in good numbers in forests even on the main islands of New Zealand, but some birds from the North Island subspecies have been reintroduced to Tiritiri all the same. They may not look like much in their drab gray feathers, but are still fun to encounter, as they are among the boldest of birds, often actually approaching people walking on the trails.
