Wrybills at Risk - Information Report by Darwin and Sam
Did you know that the eggs laid by wrybills look like stones? If the eggs get too hot in the sun, they will cook.
Wrybills eat larvae found under stones. Did you know they find and eat insects using their beaks?
They live in the south island of New Zealand. They can be found in wide, strong river beds.
Wrybills have white, grey and black feathers. Wrybill eggs look like stones and become camoflaged in the riverbeds. When they hatch, wrybills look like fluffy chicks.
Are you aware wrybill beaks are bent to the right?
