New Zealand Birds Online offers interested readers a comprehensive resource where they can learn "about all 467 species of New Zealand birds, including all living, extinct, fossil, vagrant and introduced bird species." Visitors who have a particular species in mind can look it up by name on the main page, while those who wish to learn what bird species they saw can try the identify that bird tab, which provides user-friendly identification in three simple steps. Readers can also look up birds by group (using either their common name or scientific), and they may also browse New Zealand's birds by location or conservation status. Individual species pages contain concise yet thorough overviews on their characteristics and ecology, accompanied by numerous images, sound clips, and links to further information. New Zealand Birds Online is managed and edited by Colin Miskelly, an ornithologist and curator of vertebrates at Te Papa, New Zealand's national museum. In addition to Te Papa, this project's partners are the Ornithological Society of New Zealand and New Zealand's Department of Conservation.
