We went to go and see the birds. We walked to the lookout. It was steep. We found a wooden chair. Somebody cut a chair. On the way we saw a baby bird. It flew through my dad's legs and dad nearly stepped on it. We looked up what bird it was, it was a wren - rifleman or titipounamu (says mum). We saw a dead mouse and a dead rat, they killed it, because they poisoned it. I found an egg shell, and it was white.
At the top of the lookout we saw a beautiful view.
They have the tallest trees in the world, they are called redwoods. They don't belong here.
I will tell you all of the animals we saw: native pigeon, kaka, kiwi, tuatara, rabbit, house sparrow, parakeets, tui, eels, blue ducks and a dead skink in the shop. I hope these guys read this blog, they never noticed there was a skink behind the shelf.
