Arataki centre, the forest native birds and pest control
The purpose of the visit was to do some field work :
- looking at chew cards
- getting information from tracking tunnels and cards
- seedling counts to establish regeneration patterns
- 5 minute bird counts to estimate bird populations
Pest control in the forest is effective and Kauri is beginning to regenerate. How many birds can you identify from their call in the video clip?
