Bird of the Year crowned

It’s the biggest day of the year for birds, with the winner of Forest and Bird’s 2018 Bird of the Year about to be revealed. Has the Kea retained its title or has it been defeated by the flightless Kakapo, the esteemed Kereru, or the sleek black stilt? This year saw the highest voter turnout on record, one cheeky bird turning up on Tinder, and almost 2000 fraudulent votes that had to be plucked out. Forest and Bird’s Megan Hubscher is in the studio.
