One of the smaller forest birds that you’ll likely see is the fantail. These birds seem friendly and flirty, as they follow trampers and walkers through the bush. But what they’re really after is the bugs you stir up by walking through the forest. Fantails eat on the wing and are dark brown and white (though some appear black). Another small bird is the brownish-green rifleman. They are most common in mountain beech forests, but can be seen in lowland shrub as well. Fauna n 17 Marine Mammals New Zealand is a hotspot for marine mammals.
Black tree fern Introduction ¨ n 14 n Geography & Land Silver fern The most famous tree fern is the ponga or silver fern. The silver fern is New Zealand’s national symbol and the one you’ll see being worn by the All Blacks (the national rugby team) and on the tail of Air New Zealand. Ponga grow to 10 meters (32 feet) high. To tell a silver fern from a black fern, look at the underside of the leaves – the silver fern is silver; the black fern is green! You can also look at the trunk where the fronds come out – on the black fern this is much darker and fuzzier.
I tell you these things not to discourage you from traveling here, but to encourage you to travel with open eyes and to look at the whole of our culture. Modern New Zealand is attempting to create a healthy environment where people of many cultures can live and thrive and it’s not an easy feat. Currently, there is “discussion” over Maori/pakeha relationships and the idea of bi-culturalism. A timely slogan in some camps is “One Country, One People,” but others reject this concept. As a recent pakeha immigrant, I struggle to understand the political and emotional issues and so I turn to a letter published in Unlimited magazine, May 2004, written by Tahu Potiki, the CEO of Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, who sits on the board of the Ngai Tahu Development Corporation: As a visitor, I encourage you to interact with a wide variety of our population – not just those who are involved in tourism.
