Welcome to Auldwood Birds based in Canterbury, New Zealand.

Canterbury is home to some of unique bird species including the Kea – the only alpine parrot in the world – and the highly-adapted braided river birds.

Braided rivers have beds of alluvial shingle, woven through with water channels. They are a hallmark landscape of Canterbury. The birds that live there include such endemic species as the highly specialised ngutupare (wrybill) the only bird in the world with a bill that bends sideways; the kaki (black stilt), the world’s rarest wading bird; the tarapuka (black-billed gull), the most endangered gull species in the world; and the endangered tarapirohe (black-fronted tern).

Auldwood Birds’ owner/guide Steve Attwood is a highly experienced outdoorsman. He can guide you safely to birding locations throughout Canterbury.

Steve is a ‘free-range’ bird guide – his clients come to him with ‘must-see’ lists of Canterbury’s birds, and Steve works out a guided itinerary to give clients the best chance of spotting each species.

Auldwood Birds is also developing site-based tours of key birding locations in Canterbury. The first of these is the Ashley-Rakahuri Estuary (see tours). One of the finest birding locations on the East Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, the Ashley-Rakahuri estuary is a wetland of international importance. Some 115 different species of birds have been observed there.

Other tours will become available in future months.
