> Dear all,
> The attached publication may be of interest to many of you. It provides an 
> overview of all of New Zealand's birds and their conservation status, 
> recognising nationally critical species.
> One statement caught my eye and which puts migratory species in a new 
> perspective is In this review, however, we treated two Arctic migrant 
> waders-eastern bar-tailed godwit Limosa lapponica baueri and lesser knot 
> Calidris canutus rogersi -as 'resident' rather than 'migrant' because greater 
> than 25% of the population of each taxon spends more than 50% of their life 
> cycle in New Zealand, even though they don't breed in New Zealand.

> What's it about?
> The first complete audit of the conservation status of the 473 taxa of birds 
> that have been recorded in New Zealand since first human contact (about 1000 
> years ago) was carried out. Using the same ranking criteria, the assessments 
> made in the audit were compared with those made in 2008 for the 428 taxa 
> recorded post-1800. A total of 20 taxa moved to a more threatened status, 
> while the status of 12 taxa improved, mainly as a result of successful 
> conservation management. Overall, 77 species were assessed as being 
> threatened with extinction, the same as in 2008; however, 25 rather than 24 
> taxa were now classified as being Nationally Critical. A list of all 473 bird 
> taxa and their conservation status in 2012 is presented.
