aviaries at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, NZ

Photo taken December 1998. At that time this group of four aviaries housed native parakeets. From left to right red-crowned kakariki ([i]Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae[/i]), yellow-crowned kakariki ([i]C. auriceps[/i]), orange-fronted kakariki ([i]C. malherbi[/i]) and Antipodes Island parakeet ([i]C. unicolor[/i]). Currently (as of January this year when I was last there) the aviaries house South Island kaka ([i]Nestor meridionalis meridionalis[/i]) in two of them, yellow-crowned kakariki and Antipodes Island parakeet in the other two.
