Bird of the year voting drawing to a close

From Morning Report, 8:29 am on 8 November 2019

With just two days to go before the poll closes, more than 40,000 people have voted in this year's Bird of the Year.

The contest, run by Forest and Bird, has been going for fifteen years, and not a single bird has won the prize twice.

Kākāpō and Hoiho are currently vying for first place, with Kakaruia - the black robin, and Pīwakawaka - the fantail flying behind.
