Possible tropicbirds, Whangarei

Postby Michael Szabo » Mon Jul 18, 2022 12:11 pm

Denise Jelicich just reported the following via Facebook: "Just saw two Tropic Birds flying strongly over Mangapai (S of Whangarei) heading towards Whangarei Heads. Flying NW to Se direction. I have seen Tropic Birds many times in Rarotonga and, suprised as I was, I’m certain of my identification. They were the right size and with spectacularly long tails."
