The photographs in this collection were taken in November 1996 in both North and South Island, New Zealand. On such a short trip it is impossible to do justice to such a beautiful and diverse country. However, I hope that this collection will give a taste of the bird-life of New Zealand. All birds featured are wild
Back then I was not adding captions for each month, but I did have some information on the back page - I have copied some minimal comments to the appropriate months for this posting. The older scanner quality is also evident. At some point I hope to rescan these images with more up-to-date equipment. For this calendar I included an extra month - for the next year.
