Wording on the back of the card:
” Known for being amusingly noisy, cheeky and sociable they often flock together, squawking in the early morning and late evening. The South Island sub species can be found in Nelson, down the West Coast to Fiordland, and on Stewart Island, Ulva Island and on Codfish Island.
Recognised by their mainly olive brown feathers, striking orange and scarlet underwings, large beak and scaly feet.
Pay a visit to Natureland in Nelson to say hello and learn more about the important breed for release programme being undertaken to protect this Nationally Vulnerable native bird. “
This card is made from my original drawing of one of the actual birds bred for release into the Abel Tasman National Park
