New Zealand Birds Online
A new website www.nzbirdsonline.org.nz, a digital encyclopaedia of New Zealand birds, was launched in June 2013.
The project is a collaboration between the Department of Conservation, Te Papa, and the Ornithological Society of New Zealand.
The intended audience is anyone with an interest in New Zealand birds, from novice to professional, and it has been put together with crowd-sourced texts and digital images. It includes a three step process to help you identify a bird, conservation status information and includes audio files of bird song.
