Pied Shag - possible new breeding speciesDate posted: 29-Dec-2011
Pied Shags are a common sight on Tiritiri Matangi, sometimes feeding on the seas around the Island, standing on the beach or nearby rocky outcrops, or roosting in pohutukawa trees around the coast, but we are not sure they have ever been recorded breeding on the Island.
However, on a low tide walk around the eastern shoreline over the Christmas period, Simon and Morag Fordham, Kay Milton and John Stewart came across several nests with large chicks. If anyone knows of earlier records of breeding pied shags, please let us know.
The picture shows an adult bird feeding a large chick. The chick has its head right inside the adult's throat.
