    NZ Bird of the year - Serious business lol

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=11931731

    Feathers are already flying in the annual Bird of the Year contest, after the shocking revelation that someone has lodged more than 100 fraudulent votes for the white-faced heron.

    "I've been running these programmes for real elections in the US, UK, and here in New Zealand, so I thought why not do it for Bird of the Year?" Dragonfly's Yvan Richard said.

    "I noticed there was a big spike for the white-faced heron at midnight on the first day of voting, so I let Forest and Bird know."


    What a crackup - someone really wants the white faced heron to win Would love this to be put on Reddit or something and a lowly bird like a sparrow to win haha.

    Fraudulent votes were from Chch. First thing that crossed my mind when I heard the story was Liquid_Ace.

    Only 2? We have a flock of them (lots of kowhai and other stuff they like to feed on here) - love tui's). At the moment they're all fighting over who gets to shag the girls, so interesting chases/stalling flights etc going on.

    We've currently got at least 20 magpies hanging around the property, they're the worst.

    Get Gar to build a one way trap cage and then relocate them.
