What's the course about?
Learning about the appearance, calls, and habitat of the birds will give you more chance of accurately identifying these birds.
The 10 birds are the bellbird/korimako, silver eye, grey warbler, tomtit, chaffinch, fantail/pīwakawaka, blackbird, tūī, rifleman and New Zealand wood pigeon/kererū.
