Wonderful news from Codfish Island, with this article from The New Zealand Herald.

A flurry of activity on a remote island means at least four kakapo chicks are expected this season.

At least five matings of the birds were observed by Department of Conservation staff on Codfish Island, off the coast of Stewart Island, last week. The ground-dwelling parrots do not breed every season.
