Congratulations to Te Koha Waiata and Cloudsley Shovel. After two unsuccessful seasons our founder pair has a healthy chick which was banded on Thursday 22nd December. The bands are Jade-Metal on the left and red on the right leg and the chick has been named Miharo which means 'wonder, amazing, surprise, awe'. It was about 14 days old when banded and, if it survives to fledge it will be TKW and Cloudsley's 22nd offspring!
Phantom and Te Hari also have a chick which is about a week old.
When Art Polnakov climbed up to check Noel and Rehu's chick last week, it was rather too advanced to try to band. As Art approached the chick hopped out of the nest and out of reach. Happily, shortly after we retreated, the chick returned to the nest where it is still being fed by its parents. It is due to fledge over the next few days.
Other active nests include those of Kikorangi and Mawhero (nest may be complete but not sitting yet) and Pari and Koha (sitting on eggs).
Crown and Pureora don't seem to be nesting yet and we are having difficulty finding out what Chatters and Te Rae are up to.
