Christmas and New Year can be a busy time and many keen bird watchers have to take a step back from their hobby and focus their attention on spending valuable time with family and friends rather than out in the field.
Don't get us wrong, time with loved ones is important and enjoyable, but that doesn't make us miss observing our favourite feathered friends in all their glory any less! If you haven't had the time or opportunity to visit some of your most loved bird watching locations of late, then why not do the next best thing and take a minute to watch this short video created by Birding New Zealand. New Zealand sure is a beautiful country and we're so lucky to be surrounded by some very quirky and colourful native birds! Enjoy!
