Ride a bike to Macetown or a horse into the high country. From the sandy beaches of Northland to the snowy Southern Alps, New Zealand is a country of eye candy. When New Zealand was designed, it’s as if all the greatest places on earth were put together in one compact little land mass and most of the people were removed. Luckily for travelers, New Zealand is also a user-friendly kind of place, combining the laid-back attitudes of an island with the conveniences and lifestyle of the first world.

For some time, the history books claimed that the Moriori were actually the first settlers of the South Island and were either driven away by the Maori or had left on their own to explore the Chathams. There is little evidence, however, to support this theory. Like many of the Pacific tribes of the time (including the Maori), warring between tribes was bringing the downfall of the Moriori and leading to a decline in population. Chief Nunuku Whenua ordered an end to war and, following his decree, it was instituted that if disagreements occurred, fighting was stopped at the first drop of blood.

The Chatham Island robin was on the brink of extinction, but following an heroic DoC effort (using other birds such as tomtits as foster parents) they are enjoying a resurgence. Tomtits are one of my favorite forest birds, partly because of their role in the recovery of the Chatham Island robin, and partly because I think it’s fun to say the name. The green bellbird is a common resident of most of New Zealand’s forest (they are found virtually everywhere but the far north). Bellbirds have a beautiful, clear song and birds from different areas have different dialects.
