A pair of bellbirds or korimako in a Tamahere garden are raising hopes that the native birds’ numbers are rising in the Waikato after a decades-long absence.

Sanctuary Lane resident Dynes Fulton, the Waikato district deputy mayor, first observed the pair – a male and a female – about a month ago and the once rare sighting has now become a daily occurrence.

Male korimako are more often seen on their own so the presence of the female has raised the exciting prospect that the pair might mate in breeding season later in the year.

The only birds that feed at the station are tui and wax eyes.
