Wonderful Bird Display at Orokonui

The fruits of the Orokonui Ecosanctuary are already becoming apparent.   Yesterday we found the ecosanctuary alive with the sight and sounds of birds: we saw tuis, bell-birds, fantails, little bush-birds, a fern-bird, and kaka.
More bird-life will be seen by moving quietly and stopping regularly.  Groups who stomp along the trails while conversing loudly will see little.
A hot chocolate and cake in the cafe with a view over the Silverpeaks is a bonus.
Even before the ecosanctuary, bird-life was growing in the city and many residents feed bell-birds, tuis and bush-birds with sugar-water in the winter.
In future years, we can look forward to seeing flocks of kakas around the Dunedin hills, just as they can be currently seen in the Hollyford valley and Stewart Island.
