Boom! Hoki enjoying some treats after she was caught by the DOC kākāpō team.

We kākāpō think that treats are the best form of bribery, it makes us much happier to be caught and checked the next time!

Skraaarrk! Thanks to all of you who have asked about me. I’m still living off the grid since my transmitter stopped working but there is no reason to worry. I’m on a safe, predator-free island with other kākāpō.

It’s something of a family tradition — my Grandad Rangi was missing for 21 years on Whenua Hou, but I’m sure my ranger mates will find me sooner than that...

I will update you all...

Skraaarrk! Pīwakawaka or fantails are pretty common in New Zealand, but they don't usually look like this

This white fantail might look pretty, but white isn't a very sensible colour for a bird because it makes him really easy to see. This is great for photographers, but also for predators who can spot a white bird easily in the forest, and might think that he looks extra tasty.

Stay safe...
