Agent 07 is a real character!
He prefers to live undercover, away from the spotlight. His elusive antics on the West Coast of Northland really keep the monitoring crew on their toes. They usually need to hatch a cunning plan to catch him when it’s time for a transmitter change, and he often wins the day!
He’s a pretty good looking Northland male kiwi. Always on the run, he’s yet to settle down with a mate despite good numbers of female calling nearby!
All that aside, Agent 07 does like his routine. The tiny transmitter fitted to his leg shows how he perfectly times his emergence from his burrow with sunset each night – a very clever kiwi indeed.
Where did Agent 07 wander off to this time? Is he looking for a mate or a good spot to set up his own territory…? How does he keep track of sunrise so well?
