Twelve huia birds greet a new day,
in songs that sweetly share the word.
With orange cheeks and funny-shaped beaks, they are a beautiful sight to be heard.

Do you know the story of the majestic vanished huia bird? The largest of the New Zealand forest birds, the huia were very special and their loss is one of the great tragedies of New Zealand conservation history.

Customer Reviews

An interactive account of the now extinct huia birds

We found this story interesting with professional narration, and interactive elements on each page. We also learned the story of how huia birds became extinct...would have loved to see more facts or actual historical documents included in the app, but this is a good Segway into discussing the huia birds of New Zealand, and how industrialization and hunting can impact a species.
