SLJ, Bird Of The Year!- Day 3, Activity 1

Photo by- NZ Birds Online


  1. Hi Caitlyn

    This is a great slideshow on Gannets. It has lots of information that you have gathered about the bird.
    They are quite a lovely looking bird, with their yellow head and white body.
    Have you ever voted in the bird of the year competition?
    My daughter makes me vote each year as she is a huge native bird enthusiast. She loves to go out and take photos of birds all the time.
    This year I voted for the Kakapo. I think this is an amazing bird and would really like to see one up close.
    The wingspan of the Gannet is pretty incredible too. Two metres is huge.They would look very graceful when flying.

    Good job, this is another bird you could work with. Maybe you should get a job as a DOC ranger to start with so you can work with all kinds of different birds and animals.

    Until next time

    Allie :)

    1. Hello Allie,

      Yes, I have voted in the bird of the year, Last year I voted for the Kakapo as well I think! Being a DOC Ranger sounds like a lot of hard work but also fun.

      Caitlyn, :)


Thanks for your positive, thought and helpful comment on my work.
