Tiritiri Matangi Island Photos

On Friday I was lucky enough to spend the day on the stunning Tiritiri Matangi Island, along with fellow STLP participants Emma and Leanne. A special focus of my visit was to look at the hihi monitoring and care that takes place there as Lake Rotokare hopes to translocate hihi from Tiri in the near future. Here are a selection of photos from our day. 


  1. Beautiful pictures Shakira! I especially like the close up, side-on one of the Tui and the one of the little green/yellow bird with the purple face. Both are flawless. The plumage on that Tui is just gorgeous. Seems like a great place to visit.


  2. These photos are magnificent. Beautiful photography. You must have been able to get quite close to the birds?
