Description

Theres been a second Cape Barren on and off at Travis for the last month.
From one report I've had the new bird sounds like it's had a fair bit of interaction with humans before.
On this day one of them was constantly chasing around behind the other.
Baby Barrens at Travis would be pretty cool.

Possibly the first time these birds had been seen in Canterbury in a hundred years.
They've been there for a couple of weeks.
There was two birds there, I'll not guarantee these images are of both of them or just one.
