Another chance for Hutton’s shearwater – The Wrybill – June 2009

Download >> The Wrybill June 2009

What a flight of discovery I have had over the past 45 years studying Hutton’s shearwater (Puffinus huttoni), known as the Kaikoura titi or pakaha to Ngai Tahu, or simply muttonbird to most New Zealanders. Birds had always interested me having joined the New Zealand Forest and Bird Protection Society in 1936 as a 10 year old, but it has been this particular seabird species that has resulted in my lifelong quest to ensure their preservation.
