Introduction

Takahē were only rediscovered in 1948 and remain among our rarest birds. Thanks to high flyers like the chicks in this video, takahē can once again roam the Murchison Mountains in Fiordland.

Highlights

This video is part of the Meet the Locals series that was originally shown on TVNZ.
