99 – My Birb of the Year 2022

It’s that time of year again! The Forest and Bird competition to see who is Aotearoa’s Bird of the Year is back on! Every year I pick a native or endemic bird to talk about to teach you about some of the weird and wonderful birds we have. This year I chose the mātātā or fernbird!

Check out the website and shownotes!
