Former kororā researcher and present fan of the natural world.

I imagine you're here because I've been obsessively adding ssp to your observations?

Previous work on other seabirds from Aotearoa, Irish turloughs, South Africa game reserves, coqui research, and frequent visitor to natural areas wherever I happen to be. Sharing info & research notes on Insta as well @intyrely_eco

Following & IDing
-Sphenisciformes (Penguins), especially Eudyptula (kororā) and their often-confused taxonomy (see below)
-Aotearoa seabirds, especially Pterodroma (gadfly petrels) and Pelecanoides (kuaka)
-Platalea (Spoonbills)
-Aotearoa birds in general, but don't expect *any* competence in ducks!
