This is a North Island Robin, that lives on Tiritiri Matangi Island in Auckland’s Hauraki gulf.
Yes, the species of bird is an endangered species, which is why it lives in a bird sanctuary. Here the birds sometimes follow you around and they often sit on the ground in front of you. They are a special bird.
Cats would easily get this bird, it wouldn’t have a chance against cats. I love cats, I don’t like them killing birds. Its nature. So cats can’t come to this island.
It’s great some people get together and try to help these small birds in New Zealand.
