Friends of Puketoki have been undertaking bird counts to record the variety of species in the reserve. At regular intervals members return to the same location and in 5 minutes record all birds they can either see or hear. For more information on bird counts, click here.
Recent results for the the surveys have discovered rare North Island Robin, Bellbirds and Kaka. Additionally there’s the more familiar Grey Warblers, Tuis and Fantails. This is in huge contrast to a few years ago when the forest was near silent.
