Critter of the Week New Zealand white faced storm petrel

From Afternoons, 3:40 pm on 24 July 2020

This week we are heading to the ocean to talk about the New Zealand white faced storm petrel, takahikare-moana or Jesus Christ bird. These small seabirds get their names from the birds ability to seemingly “walk on water”. As it is such a small bird it needs to have a bit of a running start to get airborne explains Doc's Nicola Toki.
