    Title: Brilliance of Birds

    Who knew that the morepork, our only surviving native owl, can turn its head 270 degrees? Or that the bar-tailed godwit triples its body weight before undertaking an epic and continuous migration of 11,000 kilometres? Or that the tui has two voiceboxes, enabling it to duet with itself, and one producing sounds too high-frequency for humans to hear?

    Zany, off-kilter, wondrous and wild, The Brilliance of Birdsgives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of some of New Zealand's feathered friends.
