Kererū count begins

New Zealand’s yearly Great Kereru Count has started for 2019.

New Zealanders are being asked to keep an eye out for the country Wood Pigeon after the sixth annual Great Kererū Count got underway on Friday.

The project is aimed at helping scientists learn more about the kererū’s behaviour.

About 8000 sightings were logged on the Great Kereru Count website last year.

This year organises are also asking people to do timed sightings, and report when they don’t see kererū, as well.

Tony Stoddard of Kererū Discovery, which coordinates the count, said the number of people taking part grew each year, proving just how much New Zealanders love kererū.

The results will be posted online.

The 10-day count runs until Sunday, September 29.
